Position statement for Clint Adams

I am Clint Adams (Clint on irc.oftc.net), and I am standing for election to the SPI board.

Why am I running?

Over the past year or so I have become more acquainted with the workings of many FLOSS-related non-profits. Given the current political climate, it seems that in the near term, fiscal sponsorship organizations will be more important than ever.

In its field, I believe that SPI is the best for most projects that might want to be under its umbrella; it strikes the right balance between service and supervision. Certainly if one of my projects ever had such a need, I would consider SPI first.

Thus I believe that SPI should continue what it is doing and continue to grow and accept new member projects.

About me:

I have been a Debian Developer since 1997, a contributing SPI member since 2001, an ongoing contributor and author of many free software projects, and a user of many more, including several current SPI member projects. I also work with the Software Freedom Law Center, a 501(c)(3) non-profit that provides pro bono legal services to free software projects, including SPI and Debian.
