FSF executive director John Sullivan will be giving his speech “The Free Software Foundation and Debian” at DebConf 19 (2019-07-21–28):

Debian and the Free Software Foundation, along with its GNU Project, share many goals and ideals. They are two of the most mature and dedicated organizations working in the free software movement. This is an annual opportunity to talk in person about how they can better work together and inspire each other.

FSF members (and potential members) will meet to talk about the FSF’s work, the FSF’s relationship with Debian, and progress of the movement as a whole:

  • A very brief update by the FSF’s executive director on highlights of the FSF’s work since the last DebConf
  • Feedback (positive and negative) from members, and a little brainstorming about what the FSF should and shouldn’t be doing
  • A review of the current relationship between the FSF and Debian
  • A discussion of areas for collaboration, focused on projects that could be completed or significantly advanced before the next DebConf

Recognizing that we can’t cover everything in 45 minutes, at the beginning, we’ll choose some specific topics to focus on under this general umbrella.

Past sessions at DebConf have led to concrete positive results like collaboration on the hardware database at Let’s have another productive one!

This session will not be recorded, in order to make participants feel more comfortable speaking informally.

Location: Sala de Videoconferencia, Av. Sete de Setembro, 3165 Rebouças, Curitiba, PR 80.230-901, Brazil
