Software in the Public Interest (SPI)

We encourage programmers to use the GNU General Public License or other licenses that allow free redistribution and use of software, and hardware developers to distribute documentation that will allow device drivers to be written for their product.

SPI acts as a fiscal sponsor to many free and open source projects, like Debian, ArchLinux, LibreOffice, _OFTC_, etc.
