  1. Software.coop looked at that and decided not to participate because they are unwilling to include free software topics. It’s an incomplete story.


  2. Mj, free as in not open source? Or what exactly won’t they include?


  3. Nicole: I’m glad to see that you’ve found TeachingOpenSource.org! Although there’s a bit of summer lull, we’re a fairly active community of over 100 people from all continents, and we welcome new participants.

    (MJ Ray’s comments are specifically related to the term “free software” vs. “open source” — we are of course entirely about teaching free and open source software, but because of the ambiguity surrounding the term “free” in English many of the wiki pages refer to “open source”).


  4. That’s what I figured it was :) Thanks for clarifying.


  5. If it was entirely about teaching free and open source software, the project wouldn’t be so hardline against including free software in the project name. The ambiguity surrounding the term “open” in English is worse.
