In order to comply with the licensing requirements of some open-source software that Tesla has incorporated into its own software products, Tesla has created public GitHub repositories and begun publishing portions of the affected source code.

(To be clear: these repositories do not contain propritary code, such as the full Autopilot stack or infotainment apps. They simply contain Tesla's modifications to existing open-source projects.)

According to Tesla, other repositories affected by open-source licenses will be added in the near future. I will add them to the list above as they become available.

Questions or concerns about Tesla's use of open-source software can be addressed to
