Group: Free Software Foundation/Licensing Volunteers/GPL interviews
Each month, the FSF licensing team tries to publish an interview highlighting a project that has chosen to publish their software under GNU licenses, especially GNU GPLv3 and AGPLv3.
Note: As of mid-2022, the FSF is rebooting these interviews! We have a couple interviews on the docket, but if you have any tips on potential candidates, please add them to the list below. Thank you!
Possible (future) interviews
Please add your suggestions to the list below. We prefer (for this purpose) if the project is not a part of the GNU Project.
- GlobalLeaks which appears to be AGPLv3
- Martus which seems to be GPLv3 according to https://code.google.com/p/martus/
- Stephen Hawes from LumenPnP.
- Marko Saric from Plausible regarding AGPLv3.
- Drew DeVault known for Sourcehut.
- Koreader e-reader software, licensed under AGPLv3.
- gotosocial, an AGPLv3 ActivityPub server written in Go.
To get more ideas, consider looking through this list on the free software directory.
