Software Heritage

The Great Library of Source Code


Software Heritage collects, preserves, and shares software source code from major software development forges, free software distributions, package manager repositories, and more. As such, Software Heritage is the premier digital preservation initiative whose goal encompasses the long-term archival of free software commons for generations to come.
The Software Heritage archive is the largest publicly accessible archive of software source code, having collected 10 billion unique source code files and 2 billion unique commits from more than 160 million software projects.
This talk will provide an update about the Software Heritage project, focusing on increased archive coverage, integration with other initiatives, and way to practically use the archive, for both end users and developers.
