I had originally asked in this thread if we should allow non-copyleft open source projects on this community at all, but I didn’t get enough responses to come to a decision, so I will still continue to allow non-copyleft until further notice. Instead, I decided on this…




A new episode of Pepper & Carrot was released a few days ago. Both the images and story are CC-BY 4.0, and the art is amazing! It’s by David Revoy, who recently did talks at Libreplanet and the Matrix meeting. It’s my favourite Libre comic! …

[Rant] Stallman, Code of Conducts and HR Culture

What is libre culture?

Libre culture is all about empowering people. While the general philosophy stems greatly from the free software movement, libre culture is much broader and encompasses other aspects of culture such as music, movies, food, technology, etc.

Some beliefs include but aren’t limited to:

  • That copyright should expire after a certain period of time.
  • That knowledge should be available to people, not locked away.
  • That no entity should have unjust control or possession of others.
  • That mass surveillance is about mass control, not justice.
  • That we can all band together to help liberate each other.

Rules

I’ve looked into the ways other forums handle rules, and I’ve distilled their policies down into two simple ideas.

  • Please show common courtesy: Let’s make this community one that people want to be a part of.

  • Please keep posts generally on topic

  • No NSFW content

  • When sharing a Libre project, please include the name of its license in the title. For example: “Project name and summary (GPL-3.0)”

Libre culture is a very very broad topic, and while it’s perfectly okay for a conversation to stray, I do ask that we keep things generally on topic.
