<p>Oh. Licensing.</p>
<p><a href="https://github.com/presidentbeef/brakeman/blob/master/LICENSE.md">Brakeman is proprietary software</a>. It appears from reading the licence (IANAL etc) that we'd be covered by the free-beer usage, and any conceivable use in our context would be fine (e.g. developer being paid to contribute to OpenStreetMap, or this codebase being used in a commercial context). But it's still something to consider.</p>
<p>An open-source fork named "<a href="https://github.com/david-a-wheeler/railroader">Railroader</a>" exists, forked from the last MIT licensed version of Brakeman. The Railroader project is currently 4 months old.</p>

<p>So would we be happy using Brakeman?</p>
