About the GNU Press

by Matt Lee Contributions Published on Jun 08, 2011 09:49 AM
GNU Documentation is unique because of our attitude towards it — we believe the reader should be free to copy and redistribute it, just like our software.

Our original mission was just printing manuals of GNU software programs. We are now expanding into the fields of general computer science and computer science philosophy as well. Our new “Philosophy of Software Freedom” series will examine the free software philosophy from a number of different angles, such as law, ethics, and business. We hope to bring the discussion into the mainstream, and show how the free software philosophy can be applied to seemingly unrelated fields, such as classical musical composition and art.

We welcome inquiries from potential authors, and are especially interested in working with computer science teachers to create more materials for classroom use.

For more detailed information on our theory of free documentation, please see Free Software and Free Manuals.
