2002-07-02.iwj.5: Supporting The Open and Free Technology Community

July 2nd, 2002

The resolution below has been accepted and unanimously approved at the meeting of the Board of Directors of Software in the Public Interest, Inc. ("SPI") on July 2nd, 2002.

The Open and Free Technology Community (henceforth referred to as "OFTC") was founded at the end of 2001 by a group of experienced members of the Open Source and Free Software communities, and aims to provide these communities with better communication, development, and support infrastructure.

The Board resolves to accept OFTC as an SPI supported project; the board will accept donations earmarked for OFTC, if OFTC requests this, and again will spend money according to the OFTC constitution (again provided this is in accordance with SPI's legal obligations).

As part of supporting OFTC, the Board of Directors of SPI resolves that it will accept ownership of the domain name, "OFTC.net", in trust, and will administer it as directed according to the constitution of the OFTC (subject to SPI's legal obligations).
