JC, thank you for doing this, and for sharing the information about CII. I didn’t know about it, and it is a very interesting initiative indeed. It is nice that they organized all those items. But it does look like filling it out would require significant effort!

I just have few comments

3D Slicer software is distributed under a BSD-style open source license

We had a discussion about this before with @mhalle, @pieper, @rkikinis et al - the sentence above is somewhat misleading. The fact of a matter is that Slicer license is not a BSD license. There is no such thing as “BSD-style license”.

How about “3D Slicer software is distributed under a permissive open source license that permits academic and commercial reuse of the source code”, or something along those lines?

What do you think is the proper way to address security vulnerabilities, static/dynamic analysis?

Thanks for letting me know this, I have managed to make a badge for my extension too:
