Post Syndicated from jake original https://lwn.net/Articles/713073/rss

Last year, three new umbrella organizations for free and open-source
software (and hardware) projects emerged in Europe. Their aim is to
cater to the needs of the community by providing a legal entity for
projects to join, leaving the projects free to focus on technical and community
tasks. These organizations
(Public Software CIC, [The Commons Conservancy],
and the Center for the Cultivation of Technology)
will take on the overhead of actually running a
legal entity themselves.
