Free Software Foundation Aims To Launch Code Hosting / Collaboration Platform This Year


The Free Software Foundation is planning to launch their own public code hosting and collaboration platform in 2020. The Free Software Foundation “Forge” will complement their existing and aging Savannah servers used for code hosting. The Free Software Foundation isn’t looking to develop their own hosting/collaboration platform as an original GNU project but looking at an existing free software solution they can adapt for their purposes.

The Free Software Foundation team is currently evaluating options based on practical and ethical criteria such as whether the JavaScript is deemed free software with LibreJS, and other stringent free software requirements.
