Software Freedom Conservancy Becomes an Open Source Initiative Affiliate Member
The Software Freedom Conservancy joins long list of Open Source Initiative Affiliate Members
"We're excited to participate in the Open Source Initiative's ongoing work to educate users and decision-makers about how licensing and cooperation go hand in hand. By joining as an affiliate member, we affirm our support of collaboration to promote the ideals of software freedom." says Karen Sandler, Software Freedom Conservancy's Executive Director
Critical to both the OSI's and open source projects' success is, as stated in the OSI mission, "building bridges between communities."
"Software Freedom Conservancy continues to have a profound effect on the world of free, open source software both through its work sustaining important projects and by engaging more widely on topics of general concern. OSI is delighted to welcome them as an Affiliate and looks forward to working with them to promote software freedom." says Simon Phipps, OSI Board President.
Conservancy, a public charity focused on ethical technology, is the home of nearly fifty member projects dedicated to developing free and open source software. Conservancy acts as a corporate umbrella, allowing member projects to operate as charitable initiatives without having to independently manage their own corporate structure and administrative services.
