Note: This event has ended, but a recording is available now at

The Free Software Foundation (FSF) will host a conversation with the GNU Toolchain maintainers behind the proposal on the GNU Toolchain infrastructure, the Linux Foundation, and the Sourceware community.

Many longtime maintainers, volunteers, and community members have raised important questions about the proposal. This event will be an opportunity for the community to get involved in an open and transparent discussion.

The public meeting will be hosted on BigBlueButton and made available to the wider free software community via livestream. This way, the details of the proposal can be presented, and a conversation can be held about the proposal's intended changes to the infrastructure used by the GNU Toolchain community to test, build, and package releases.

Please join us for this public conversation. The event will be held in BigBlueButton, where the main presenters and invited community members will be able to communicate directly, moderated by the FSF.

To preserve bandwidth, only the invited speakers will be participating in the BigBlueButton room. However, everyone will be able to view a stream of the session and join the conversation in IRC.

We encourage submitting your questions in advance as well by sending them to, or you can ask them live on IRC in the #fsf channel on the Libera.Chat network.
