CRA Panel

We have invited leaders in the Python community and domain experts to discuss the current state of CRA, related regulations and the potential effect to open-source, especially in the Python community. Confirmed Panelists are:

  • Deb Nicholson - Executive Director at the Python Software Foundation
  • Jannis Leidel - Founder of the Python Packaging Authority and the PSF Board of Directors
  • Ciarán O'Riordan - Senior Policy Advisor of OpenForum Europe

CRA panel Q&A

After the panel, it is your turn to ask questions and voice out your concern regarding the CRA. Are you a contributor to open-source software and wonder who will be held accountable for the software that you contributed? Are you working for a company that publishes open-source software and wonder if that will affect the business model of your company? Are you using open-source software and wonder if the open-source ecosystem would be the same after the CRA has been put into action? Join us to discuss all these.

CRA Unconference Discussion

If you would like to discuss further about CRA and the related PLD (Product Liability Directive), and their potential effect in the open source community. We reserved a 1-hour session in the open space for unconference discussion.
