Subject: RMS & GNU supports FreeDevelopers.net
GNU asks that all software developers support FreeDevelopers.net.
GNU.org on its front page under the heading "GNUs Flashes" says "Please
support the FreeDevelopers.net project. FreeDevelopers.net is a
democratic entity for the development of free software," with links to
the FreeDevelopers.net site.
GNU.org elaborates on its link page [www.gnu.org/links/links] with:
"FreeDevelopers is a democratic entity for the development of free
software. The free company, probably the first of its kind in the world,
will be owned and run by developers worldwide on a democratic basis in a
sacred trust for the benefit and protection of the world's citizens."
"It will pay all developers to work on free software, and all developers
will receive company shares and stock options, also. All software of the
free company will be licensed under the General Public License (GPL) and
remain free/open forever, because all software must be available to all
current and future generations of developers, so that they can be the
first line of defense to protect the world from the inevitable
tyrannical tendencies of proprietary software."
FreeDevelopers.net deeply thanks RMS and GNU for their confidence and
We would like you and your members to join us, too.
