The overall support that we receive is pretty good. ​We find licenses together with WhiteSource which are associated with a certain library, then we get a classification of the license. This is with respect to criticality and vulnerability, so we could take action and improve some things, or replace a third-party library which seems to be too risky for us to use on legal grounds.We can take some measures to improve things, replace a library, or update a library which was too old or showed severe bugs.Enables scanning/collecting third-party libraries and classifying license types. In this way we ensure our third-party software policy is followed.
