Conda (Anaconda) file support for License Management
Problem to solve
As of LicenseFinder v5.11.1, Python support is limited to Pip. It's implemented in the Pip::PackageManager class and relies on the license_finder_pip.py Python script to fetch and install the Python packages. A number of customers using Anaconda for Python are interested in having this functionality added to the License Management component in GitLab.
LicenseFinder has an open issue (291) that needs help from people who understand Anaconda for Python. This upstream help will be beneficial, and will add tremendous value to the Scientific community using GitLab for Scientific Computing.

What does success look like, and how can we measure that?
