I and my colleagues sadly don't have a tool to participate in the bake-off
this year, but in preparation for the future, and out of general curiosity:

What are the licensing requirements are for software tools to enter the
bake-off?  (i.e., do the tools have to be under a specific set of licenses
to participate?  What are the rules in this regard?)

There are no licensing requirements for tools themselves to participate in the bake-off,
the only requirement is that they are able to produce (and ideally consume) valid
SPDX files.   

We're pleased that FOSSology is going to participate for the first time in one
of our bake-off's in Berlin, which is a tool I believe you use already.      

We've also got listed the community supported tools as well as the commercial tools 
we know about on our web site, if you want to see the possible participants.   
All tools (even if they are not listed on the site) are welcome. 

Hope this helps,
