2015 letter to the U.S. Department of Education
To whom it may concern,
Alongside this letter you will find printed comments regarding the Notice of Proposed Rule Making (NPRM), Open Licensing Requirement for Direct Grant Programs 80 FR 67672 (Nov. 3rd, 2015). The purpose of this letter, which itself is not a comment on an NPRM, is to explain to you why we, the Free Software Foundation, along with many of our members, were unable to submit these comments in digital format.
We would be happy to provide our comments in digital form if a mechanism were available that allowed submission of comments without the use of proprietary software. Please offer such a method in the future.
