The purpose of co-organizing such an event is to raise the profile of our celebrations while bringing a public space for discussions about the future of our movement. Over the past two years DFI/SFI has been through important changes in its governance such as expending community involvement through various committees, tightening our budget to remain cash positive, surveying SFD organizers and enhancing the team pack to enable teams to reuse the materials they receive, just to name a few of our efforts. It is now time to raise collaboration efficiency by getting together!
The full announcement is available here.
Since October 2011 the SFI board has taken a few major decisions regarding its own future. Stability among board members should allow us to push our celebration and advocacy concepts to new heights, and in order to reach those goals we had to widen the scope of our possible actions by changing our bylaws and adding a DBA (doing-business-as) name to our official organization registration. While the bylaws'final wording is still under review SFI has decided to operate under the name of Digital Freedom International.
As stated in its bylaws, Software Freedom International met on December 1st, as it does every year. The main purpose of the meeting is to elect the new board for the upcoming year. All current board members were willing to remain on the board and have therefore been reelected for another term.
