What issues in the free software community are most concerning to you, and what do you think could be done to address them?



Ideas to make existing campaigns better.


Ideas for new campaigns.

  • A bookbuying campaign between FSF, CC, SFC (and others?) for people to buy a bundle containing "Free Software, Free Society", "Free as in Freedom", and "Free Culture" for their local schools, libraries, and activist centers. This would promote important information and bring free culture people into the free software movement. Kxra 15:21, 15 April 2012 (EDT)
  • Get programmers everywhere to unionize under IU 560 Kxra 10:40, 16 April 2012 (EDT)
  • More freedom-spreading campaigns such as the Liberated Pixel Cup [1], where a large, common project is found that many people can focus on and have fun working on -Niels Serup 18:56, 17 April 2012 (EDT)
  • Brochures, flyers, Logos, banners, rss slogan (Many updates / day) for inserting in web sites, Pfares 15:29, 16 September 2012 (EDT)
  • I would like to see more done to help community members contribute to the free software movement. I am new to the free-software community and I would like to contribute to projects (coding and publicity) but I am struggling to find information and support to help me do so. Are there no forums for FSC members to discuss projects and help each other when working on software and other projects? lorevi 00:07, 8 August 2013 (GMT)
  • Trying to get an organization to adopt Trisquel --Kete 17:31, 8 September 2013 (EDT)

  • Code leaks: a website where programmers can anonymously leak code from proprietary software companies. While not usable in free software, it may reveal hidden malicious code, security vulnerabilities, and enable reverse-engineering of formats and protocols. Kxra 10:38, 16 April 2012 (EDT)
