The QuantumChange Component Management System is a system that manages logical software components, subsystem views of those components, and product configurations. It targets large and/or distributed component based development efforts where there are many products consisting of similar but different components.
The ABOUT tool and ABOUT files provide a simple way to document the provenance (origin and license) and other important or interesting information about third-party software components that you use in your project. The tool is a command line based utility. The ABOUT tool helps automate OSS compliance that is needed throughout the software lifecycle.
