### GNU GPLv3 at the center of the black hole image

*From April 13 by Swapnil Bhartiya*

The black hole image that made big news at the beginning of this month
was created using software to virtually network and operate physical
telescopes and combine them into "a telescope as big as Earth." Two
out of the three imaging software libraries used have source code
released under GNU GPL v3. This is a major victory for free software!

### LibrePlanet 2019 wrap-up: Building the free software utopia

*From April 8*

Every year, [the LibrePlanet
conference](https://libreplanet.org/2019/) brings together many
members of the free software movement to celebrate our achievements,
strategize how to deal with our setbacks, show off new ideas, and
decide what new frontiers we will trailblaze together next. The 2019
conference included many introductions to, and updates from, new and
familiar projects, discussions on copyleft and security, and
explorations of free software in the business world, but one
compelling theme was woven through both days of the conference: how do
we maintain and increase the health of our all-important community?

*

### The US House just passed a bill to bring back net neutrality

*From April 10 by April Glaser*

The fight to bring net neutrality back from the dead got a major, if
perhaps symbolic, boost this month. US House lawmakers passed the Save
the Internet Act, a Democrat-backed bill that would prohibit companies
like Comcast, Verizon, and AT&T from slowing down, blocking, or
charging Web sites to reach users at faster speeds, with a vote of 232
to 190. The act would restore the Obama-era net neutrality rules that
Trump’s Federal Communications Commission repealed in 2017.

*

### Software Heritage and GNU Guix join forces to enable long term reproducibility

*From April 18 by Software Heritage*

Software Heritage enables long term access to software source code,
enabling users to retrieve it even if it disappers from the platform
where they are used to find it, or, worse, when the platform itself
goes away. On April 18, Software Heritage announced the first results
of a collaboration with GNU Guix, which is a stepping stone for long
term reproducibility of research software.

*

### EFF’s tweet about an overzealous DMCA takedown is now subject to an overzealous takedown

*From April 14 by Katharine Trendacosta*

A TV production company made Twitter delete a tweet pointing at an
article about a leak of unreleased TV shows. Then the Electronic
Frontier Foundation (EFF) tweeted about those events, and the arrogant
production company made Twitter take that down too.

The Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) permits victims to contest
the claim, but even if they do so, the censored work must remain
deleted for 10 days. Thus, the system rewards false claims by crowning
them with efficacy.

*

### GNU Radio Conference: September 16-20

*From April 17*

Registration is now open for GNU Radio Conference 2019! GRCon will be
held September 16-20 in Huntsville, AL, and the call for papers is
open through July 1. GNU Radio [is fiscally sponsored by the
FSF](https://www.fsf.org/working-together/fiscal-sponsorship).

*

### GUADEC 2019 call for papers

*From April 12 by GNOME Project*

GUADEC, the GNOME User and Developer European Conference, is GNOME’s
main annual conference. This year it is being held in Thessaloniki,
Greece from August 23-28.

This is a great opportunity to share your ideas with the GNOME
project, as well as the wider free software community. You don’t have
to be an existing member of the GNOME project to submit a talk: if you
have something interesting to say about software or technology, they
want to hear from you! If you’re brand new to speaking, this is also a
great opportunity to get started on your public speaking career --
they welcome newcomers and provide a friendly audience.

*

### GNU Tools Cauldron 2019

*From April 15 by GCC*

We are pleased to announce another gathering of GNU tools
developers. The purpose of this workshop is to gather all GNU tools
developers, discuss current/future work, coordinate efforts, exchange
reports on ongoing efforts, discuss development plans for the next 12
months, developer tutorials and any other related discussions. This
year, the GNU Tools Cauldron crosses the Atlantic Ocean and lands in
Montréal, Canada. Every developer working in the GNU Toolchain is
invited: GCC, GDB, binutils, runtimes, etc.

*

### Designing posters with Krita, Scribus, and Inkscape

*From April 12 by Raghavendra Kamath*

A few months ago, I was asked to design some posters for a local FSF
event. Richard M. Stallman was visiting our country, and my friend
Abhas Abhinav wanted to put up some posters and banners to promote his
visit. I designed two posters for RMS's talk in Bangalore.

I create my artwork with free software tools. Although many artists
successfully use free software to create artwork, I repeatedly
encounter comments in discussion forums claiming that free software is
not made for creative work. This article is my effort to detail the
process I typically use to create my artwork and to spread awareness
that one can do professional work with the help of free software
tools.

### Microsoft announces it will shut down ebook program and confiscate its customers' libraries

*From April 2 by Cory Doctorow*

Microsoft is shutting down their ebook store, which features books
locked down with Digital Restrictions Management (DRM), and taking
away every book that every one of its customers acquired effective
July 1. DRM ebooks are never safe! Learn more about our fight against
DRM at [Defective by Design](https://www.defectivebydesign.org/).

### VMware announces plans to remove non-complying code, Hellwig decides not to appeal

*From April 2 by Software Freedom Conservancy*

At the beginning of April, Christoph Hellwig announced the conclusion
of his case against VMware in Germany. The Hamburg Higher Regional
Court affirmed the lower court's decision, which dismissed the case on
purely procedural grounds; they did not address the main question of
the case. (The February 28th decision can be found
[here](https://bombadil.infradead.org/~hch/vmware/2019_03_11_Urteil_OLG_HH.pdf).)
Hellwig has decided with his legal counsel, Till Jaeger, and after
conferring with Conservancy, to not appeal the case further in German
courts.

VMware, in their news item about the decision by the Court, announced
that they will finally remove vmklinux from vSphere. Both Hellwig and
Conservancy had asked VMware to remove the GNU/Linux code from
VMware's proprietary kernel many times. While the preferred form of
GPL compliance is release of the entire work under the terms of the
GPL, a common alternative is to merely remove the GPL'd code from the
product. VMware chose the latter method to comply.

*

### Pearson and Google partner to steal the minds of children

*From March 25 by Alan Singer*

The price of access to thousands of "interactive learning resources
and assignments" to give kids a chance to take practice tests that
will equip them to do better on high-stakes standardized tests:
exposure to malicious spyware.

*

### GNUnet 0.11.1 released

*From April 3 by GNUnet*

We are pleased to announce the release of GNUnet 0.11.1.

This is a bugfix release for 0.11.0, mostly fixing minor bugs,
improving documentation and fixing various build issues. In terms of
usability, users should be aware that there are still a large number
of known open issues in particular with respect to ease of use, but
also some critical privacy issues especially for mobile users. Also,
the nascent network is tiny (about 200 peers) and thus unlikely to
provide good anonymity or extensive amounts of interesting
information. As a result, the 0.11.1 release is still only suitable
for early adopters with some reasonable pain tolerance.

*

### The Free Software Directory needs you! IRC meetups every Friday

*From April 23*

The [Free Software
Directory](https://directory.fsf.org/wiki/Main_Page) is an essential
catalog of free software online. The Directory is maintained by
countless volunteers dedicated to the promotion of software that
respects your personal liberty. As with any group composed of
volunteers, the informal Directory team has people who come and go,
and right now, it could really use some fresh new members to kick our
efforts into high gear.

*

### Volunteers needed! Help update "Introduction to the command line" manual

*From April 18*

[This popular and highly praised
manual](https://shop.fsf.org/books-docs/introduction-command-line) to
the command line was written in a sprint in 2009 by the FSF. We're
currently seeking volunteers to help update it. If you are interested
in contributing or would like to know more, please get in touch with
Andy Oram at . Andy has generously volunteered
his time to edit the book and coordinate the project.

*

### Join the FSF and friends in updating the Free Software Directory

Tens of thousands of people visit directory.fsf.org each month to
discover free software. Each entry in the Directory contains a wealth
of useful information, from basic category and descriptions to version
control, IRC channels, documentation, and licensing. The Free Software
Directory has been a great resource to software users over the past
decade, but it needs your help staying up-to-date with new and
exciting free software projects.

To help, join our weekly IRC meetings on Fridays. Meetings take place
in the #fsf channel on irc.freenode.org, and usually include a handful
of regulars as well as newcomers. Freenode is accessible from any IRC
client -- Everyone's welcome!

The next meeting is Friday, May 3 from 12pm to 3pm EDT (16:00 to 19:00
UTC). Details here:

### LibrePlanet featured resource: GPG guide

Every month on LibrePlanet, we highlight one resource that is
interesting and useful -- often one that could use your help.

For this month, we are highlighting GPG guide, which provides
information about the Email Self-Defense Guide. You are invited to
adopt, spread and improve this important resource.

*

Do you have a suggestion for next month's featured resource? Let us
know at .

### GNU Spotlight with Mike Gerwitz: 15 new GNU releases!

GNU GPLv3 at the center of the black hole image



From April 13 by Swapnil Bhartiya



The black hole image that made big news at the beginning of this month
was created using software to virtually network and operate physical
telescopes and combine them into "a telescope as big as Earth." Two
out of the three imaging software libraries used have source code
released under GNU GPL v3. This is a major victory for free software!

LibrePlanet 2019 wrap-up: Building the free software utopia



From April 8



Every year, the LibrePlanet
conference
brings together many
members of the free software movement to celebrate our achievements,
strategize how to deal with our setbacks, show off new ideas, and
decide what new frontiers we will trailblaze together next. The 2019
conference included many introductions to, and updates from, new and
familiar projects, discussions on copyleft and security, and
explorations of free software in the business world, but one
compelling theme was woven through both days of the conference: how do
we maintain and increase the health of our all-important community?






The US House just passed a bill to bring back net neutrality



From April 10 by April Glaser



The fight to bring net neutrality back from the dead got a major, if
perhaps symbolic, boost this month. US House lawmakers passed the Save
the Internet Act, a Democrat-backed bill that would prohibit companies
like Comcast, Verizon, and AT&T from slowing down, blocking, or
charging Web sites to reach users at faster speeds, with a vote of 232
to 190. The act would restore the Obama-era net neutrality rules that
Trump’s Federal Communications Commission repealed in 2017.






Software Heritage and GNU Guix join forces to enable long term reproducibility



From April 18 by Software Heritage



Software Heritage enables long term access to software source code,
enabling users to retrieve it even if it disappers from the platform
where they are used to find it, or, worse, when the platform itself
goes away. On April 18, Software Heritage announced the first results
of a collaboration with GNU Guix, which is a stepping stone for long
term reproducibility of research software.






EFF’s tweet about an overzealous DMCA takedown is now subject to an overzealous takedown



From April 14 by Katharine Trendacosta



A TV production company made Twitter delete a tweet pointing at an
article about a leak of unreleased TV shows. Then the Electronic
Frontier Foundation (EFF) tweeted about those events, and the arrogant
production company made Twitter take that down too.



The Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) permits victims to contest
the claim, but even if they do so, the censored work must remain
deleted for 10 days. Thus, the system rewards false claims by crowning
them with efficacy.






GNU Radio Conference: September 16-20



From April 17



Registration is now open for GNU Radio Conference 2019! GRCon will be
held September 16-20 in Huntsville, AL, and the call for papers is
open through July 1. GNU Radio is fiscally sponsored by the
FSF
.






GUADEC 2019 call for papers



From April 12 by GNOME Project



GUADEC, the GNOME User and Developer European Conference, is GNOME’s
main annual conference. This year it is being held in Thessaloniki,
Greece from August 23-28.



This is a great opportunity to share your ideas with the GNOME
project, as well as the wider free software community. You don’t have
to be an existing member of the GNOME project to submit a talk: if you
have something interesting to say about software or technology, they
want to hear from you! If you’re brand new to speaking, this is also a
great opportunity to get started on your public speaking career --
they welcome newcomers and provide a friendly audience.






GNU Tools Cauldron 2019



From April 15 by GCC



We are pleased to announce another gathering of GNU tools
developers. The purpose of this workshop is to gather all GNU tools
developers, discuss current/future work, coordinate efforts, exchange
reports on ongoing efforts, discuss development plans for the next 12
months, developer tutorials and any other related discussions. This
year, the GNU Tools Cauldron crosses the Atlantic Ocean and lands in
Montréal, Canada. Every developer working in the GNU Toolchain is
invited: GCC, GDB, binutils, runtimes, etc.






Designing posters with Krita, Scribus, and Inkscape



From April 12 by Raghavendra Kamath



A few months ago, I was asked to design some posters for a local FSF
event. Richard M. Stallman was visiting our country, and my friend
Abhas Abhinav wanted to put up some posters and banners to promote his
visit. I designed two posters for RMS's talk in Bangalore.



I create my artwork with free software tools. Although many artists
successfully use free software to create artwork, I repeatedly
encounter comments in discussion forums claiming that free software is
not made for creative work. This article is my effort to detail the
process I typically use to create my artwork and to spread awareness
that one can do professional work with the help of free software
tools.






Microsoft announces it will shut down ebook program and confiscate its customers' libraries



From April 2 by Cory Doctorow



Microsoft is shutting down their ebook store, which features books
locked down with Digital Restrictions Management (DRM), and taking
away every book that every one of its customers acquired effective
July 1. DRM ebooks are never safe! Learn more about our fight against
DRM at Defective by Design.






VMware announces plans to remove non-complying code, Hellwig decides not to appeal



From April 2 by Software Freedom Conservancy



At the beginning of April, Christoph Hellwig announced the conclusion
of his case against VMware in Germany. The Hamburg Higher Regional
Court affirmed the lower court's decision, which dismissed the case on
purely procedural grounds; they did not address the main question of
the case. (The February 28th decision can be found
here.)
Hellwig has decided with his legal counsel, Till Jaeger, and after
conferring with Conservancy, to not appeal the case further in German
courts.



VMware, in their news item about the decision by the Court, announced
that they will finally remove vmklinux from vSphere. Both Hellwig and
Conservancy had asked VMware to remove the GNU/Linux code from
VMware's proprietary kernel many times. While the preferred form of
GPL compliance is release of the entire work under the terms of the
GPL, a common alternative is to merely remove the GPL'd code from the
product. VMware chose the latter method to comply.






Pearson and Google partner to steal the minds of children



From March 25 by Alan Singer



The price of access to thousands of "interactive learning resources
and assignments" to give kids a chance to take practice tests that
will equip them to do better on high-stakes standardized tests:
exposure to malicious spyware.






GNUnet 0.11.1 released



From April 3 by GNUnet



We are pleased to announce the release of GNUnet 0.11.1.



This is a bugfix release for 0.11.0, mostly fixing minor bugs,
improving documentation and fixing various build issues. In terms of
usability, users should be aware that there are still a large number
of known open issues in particular with respect to ease of use, but
also some critical privacy issues especially for mobile users. Also,
the nascent network is tiny (about 200 peers) and thus unlikely to
provide good anonymity or extensive amounts of interesting
information. As a result, the 0.11.1 release is still only suitable
for early adopters with some reasonable pain tolerance.






The Free Software Directory needs you! IRC meetups every Friday



From April 23



The Free Software
Directory
is an essential
catalog of free software online. The Directory is maintained by
countless volunteers dedicated to the promotion of software that
respects your personal liberty. As with any group composed of
volunteers, the informal Directory team has people who come and go,
and right now, it could really use some fresh new members to kick our
efforts into high gear.






Volunteers needed! Help update "Introduction to the command line" manual



From April 18



This popular and highly praised
manual
to
the command line was written in a sprint in 2009 by the FSF. We're
currently seeking volunteers to help update it. If you are interested
in contributing or would like to know more, please get in touch with
Andy Oram at andyo@praxagora.com. Andy has generously volunteered
his time to edit the book and coordinate the project.






Join the FSF and friends in updating the Free Software Directory



Tens of thousands of people visit directory.fsf.org each month to
discover free software. Each entry in the Directory contains a wealth
of useful information, from basic category and descriptions to version
control, IRC channels, documentation, and licensing. The Free Software
Directory has been a great resource to software users over the past
decade, but it needs your help staying up-to-date with new and
exciting free software projects.



To help, join our weekly IRC meetings on Fridays. Meetings take place
in the #fsf channel on irc.freenode.org, and usually include a handful
of regulars as well as newcomers. Freenode is accessible from any IRC
client -- Everyone's welcome!



The next meeting is Friday, May 3 from 12pm to 3pm EDT (16:00 to 19:00
UTC). Details here:






LibrePlanet featured resource: GPG guide



Every month on LibrePlanet, we highlight one resource that is
interesting and useful -- often one that could use your help.



For this month, we are highlighting GPG guide, which provides
information about the Email Self-Defense Guide. You are invited to
adopt, spread and improve this important resource.






Do you have a suggestion for next month's featured resource? Let us
know at campaigns@fsf.org.

### The US House just passed a bill to bring back net neutrality

*From April 10 by April Glaser*

The fight to bring net neutrality back from the dead got a major, if
perhaps symbolic, boost this month. US House lawmakers passed the Save
the Internet Act, a Democrat-backed bill that would prohibit companies
like Comcast, Verizon, and AT&T from slowing down, blocking, or
charging Web sites to reach users at faster speeds, with a vote of 232
to 190. The act would restore the Obama-era net neutrality rules that
Trump’s Federal Communications Commission repealed in 2017.

### Software Heritage and GNU Guix join forces to enable long term reproducibility

*From April 18 by Software Heritage*

Software Heritage enables long term access to software source code,
enabling users to retrieve it even if it disappers from the platform
where they are used to find it, or, worse, when the platform itself
goes away. On April 18, Software Heritage announced the first results
of a collaboration with GNU Guix, which is a stepping stone for long
term reproducibility of research software.

### EFF’s tweet about an overzealous DMCA takedown is now subject to an overzealous takedown

*From April 14 by Katharine Trendacosta*

A TV production company made Twitter delete a tweet pointing at an
article about a leak of unreleased TV shows. Then the Electronic
Frontier Foundation (EFF) tweeted about those events, and the arrogant
production company made Twitter take that down too.

The Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) permits victims to contest

### GUADEC 2019 call for papers

*From April 12 by GNOME Project*

GUADEC, the GNOME User and Developer European Conference, is GNOME’s
main annual conference. This year it is being held in Thessaloniki,
Greece from August 23-28.

This is a great opportunity to share your ideas with the GNOME
project, as well as the wider free software community. You don’t have
to be an existing member of the GNOME project to submit a talk: if you
have something interesting to say about software or technology, they
want to hear from you! If you’re brand new to speaking, this is also a
great opportunity to get started on your public speaking career --
they welcome newcomers and provide a friendly audience.

### GNU Tools Cauldron 2019

*From April 15 by GCC*

We are pleased to announce another gathering of GNU tools
developers. The purpose of this workshop is to gather all GNU tools
developers, discuss current/future work, coordinate efforts, exchange
reports on ongoing efforts, discuss development plans for the next 12
months, developer tutorials and any other related discussions. This
year, the GNU Tools Cauldron crosses the Atlantic Ocean and lands in
Montréal, Canada. Every developer working in the GNU Toolchain is
invited: GCC, GDB, binutils, runtimes, etc.

### Designing posters with Krita, Scribus, and Inkscape

*From April 12 by Raghavendra Kamath*

A few months ago, I was asked to design some posters for a local FSF
event. Richard M. Stallman was visiting our country, and my friend
Abhas Abhinav wanted to put up some posters and banners to promote his
visit. I designed two posters for RMS's talk in Bangalore.

I create my artwork with free software tools. Although many artists
successfully use free software to create artwork, I repeatedly
encounter comments in discussion forums claiming that free software is
not made for creative work. This article is my effort to detail the
process I typically use to create my artwork and to spread awareness
that one can do professional work with the help of free software
tools.

### Microsoft announces it will shut down ebook program and confiscate its customers' libraries

*From April 2 by Cory Doctorow*

Microsoft is shutting down their ebook store, which features books
locked down with Digital Restrictions Management (DRM), and taking
away every book that every one of its customers acquired effective
July 1. DRM ebooks are never safe! Learn more about our fight against
DRM at [Defective by Design](https://www.defectivebydesign.org/).

### VMware announces plans to remove non-complying code, Hellwig decides not to appeal

*From April 2 by Software Freedom Conservancy*

At the beginning of April, Christoph Hellwig announced the conclusion
of his case against VMware in Germany. The Hamburg Higher Regional
Court affirmed the lower court's decision, which dismissed the case on
purely procedural grounds; they did not address the main question of
the case. (The February 28th decision can be found
[here](https://bombadil.infradead.org/~hch/vmware/2019_03_11_Urteil_OLG_HH.pdf).)
Hellwig has decided with his legal counsel, Till Jaeger, and after
conferring with Conservancy, to not appeal the case further in German
courts.

VMware, in their news item about the decision by the Court, announced
that they will finally remove vmklinux from vSphere. Both Hellwig and
Conservancy had asked VMware to remove the GNU/Linux code from
VMware's proprietary kernel many times. While the preferred form of
GPL compliance is release of the entire work under the terms of the
GPL, a common alternative is to merely remove the GPL'd code from the
product. VMware chose the latter method to comply.

### Pearson and Google partner to steal the minds of children

*From March 25 by Alan Singer*

The price of access to thousands of "interactive learning resources
and assignments" to give kids a chance to take practice tests that
will equip them to do better on high-stakes standardized tests:
exposure to malicious spyware.

### GNUnet 0.11.1 released

*From April 3 by GNUnet*

We are pleased to announce the release of GNUnet 0.11.1.

This is a bugfix release for 0.11.0, mostly fixing minor bugs,
improving documentation and fixing various build issues. In terms of
usability, users should be aware that there are still a large number
of known open issues in particular with respect to ease of use, but
also some critical privacy issues especially for mobile users. Also,
the nascent network is tiny (about 200 peers) and thus unlikely to
provide good anonymity or extensive amounts of interesting
information. As a result, the 0.11.1 release is still only suitable
for early adopters with some reasonable pain tolerance.

### The Free Software Directory needs you! IRC meetups every Friday

*From April 23*

The [Free Software
Directory](https://directory.fsf.org/wiki/Main_Page) is an essential
catalog of free software online. The Directory is maintained by
countless volunteers dedicated to the promotion of software that
respects your personal liberty. As with any group composed of
volunteers, the informal Directory team has people who come and go,
and right now, it could really use some fresh new members to kick our
efforts into high gear.

*

### Volunteers needed! Help update "Introduction to the command line" manual

*From April 18*

[This popular and highly praised
manual](https://shop.fsf.org/books-docs/introduction-command-line) to
the command line was written in a sprint in 2009 by the FSF. We're
currently seeking volunteers to help update it. If you are interested
in contributing or would like to know more, please get in touch with
Andy Oram at . Andy has generously volunteered
his time to edit the book and coordinate the project.

GNU GPLv3 at the center of the black hole image



From April 13 by Swapnil Bhartiya



The black hole image that made big news at the beginning of this month
was created using software to virtually network and operate physical
telescopes and combine them into "a telescope as big as Earth." Two
out of the three imaging software libraries used have source code
released under GNU GPL v3. This is a major victory for free software!

LibrePlanet 2019 wrap-up: Building the free software utopia



From April 8



Every year, the LibrePlanet
conference
brings together many
members of the free software movement to celebrate our achievements,
strategize how to deal with our setbacks, show off new ideas, and
decide what new frontiers we will trailblaze together next. The 2019
conference included many introductions to, and updates from, new and
familiar projects, discussions on copyleft and security, and
explorations of free software in the business world, but one
compelling theme was woven through both days of the conference: how do
we maintain and increase the health of our all-important community?






The US House just passed a bill to bring back net neutrality



From April 10 by April Glaser



The fight to bring net neutrality back from the dead got a major, if
perhaps symbolic, boost this month. US House lawmakers passed the Save
the Internet Act, a Democrat-backed bill that would prohibit companies
like Comcast, Verizon, and AT&T from slowing down, blocking, or
charging Web sites to reach users at faster speeds, with a vote of 232
to 190. The act would restore the Obama-era net neutrality rules that
Trump’s Federal Communications Commission repealed in 2017.






Software Heritage and GNU Guix join forces to enable long term reproducibility



From April 18 by Software Heritage



Software Heritage enables long term access to software source code,
enabling users to retrieve it even if it disappers from the platform
where they are used to find it, or, worse, when the platform itself
goes away. On April 18, Software Heritage announced the first results
of a collaboration with GNU Guix, which is a stepping stone for long
term reproducibility of research software.






EFF’s tweet about an overzealous DMCA takedown is now subject to an overzealous takedown



From April 14 by Katharine Trendacosta



A TV production company made Twitter delete a tweet pointing at an
article about a leak of unreleased TV shows. Then the Electronic
Frontier Foundation (EFF) tweeted about those events, and the arrogant
production company made Twitter take that down too.



The Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) permits victims to contest
the claim, but even if they do so, the censored work must remain
deleted for 10 days. Thus, the system rewards false claims by crowning
them with efficacy.






GNU Radio Conference: September 16-20



From April 17



Registration is now open for GNU Radio Conference 2019! GRCon will be

The FSF is always looking for volunteers
(https://www.fsf.org/volunteer). From rabble-rousing to hacking,
from issue coordination to envelope stuffing -- there's something here
for everybody to do. Also, head over to our campaigns section
(https://www.fsf.org/campaigns) and take action on software patents,
Digital Restrictions Management (DRM), free software adoption,
OpenDocument, Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA), and
more.
