The Linux Foundation

This document is part of the free resources made available by The Linux Foundation Open Compliance Program. It offers a template for the Approval Request Form used by developers to request approval to use Free and Open Source Software (FOSS) in a commercial product. The company’s Open Source Review Board (OSRB) then reviews the submission and determines approval. In most cases, the submission, reviewal and approval of such requests is managed via an online submission system that is part of the company’s FOSS compliance management process.
