| FSFE becomes the legal guardian of the OpenSwarm Project
| The OpenSwarm Project has become a signatory of the Fiduciary
| licence Agreement (FLA), a copyright assignment that allows FSFE
| to become the legal guardian of projects.
| Anastasios Hatzis, the developer behind the OpenSwarm model-driven
| development platform for Python applications, lead the process of
| assigning copyright to FSFE. "My company - HATZIS Edelstahlbearbeitung
| GmbH - wanted to foster a development community around the OpenSwarm
| technology while also underwriting our commitment to Free Software,"
| said Anastasios. "The FLA has provided us with an excellent way to
| ensure code coherency and a framework for long-term development."
| The OpenSwarm Project will be protected by FSFE's Freedom Task Force
| (FTF). Shane Coughlan, FTF Coordinator, explains "The Freedom Task
| Force is here to help strengthen the legal foundation of the Free
| Software eco-system. The Fiduciary licence Agreement is part of this.
| It provides a clear way for projects to consolidate their copyright.
| In the case of OpenSwarm, FSFE is acting a legal guardian for the
| project and ensuring that the developers can focus on maturing an
| exciting development platform."
| "FSFE is committed to help increase the maturity of the Free Software
| community, including the legal maintainability of Free Software in the
| long-term," explains FSFE president Georg Greve. He adds: "The FTF has
| a specific part to play in this and we would like to thank Stichting
| NLnet for their support in its launch and initial activities. We hope
| other groups will also lend support."
| Shane Coughlan summarises "the FTF mission to help educate
| individuals, projects and businesses in the advantages of Free Software
| licences, and to help the use of Free Software licences through
| fiduciary assignment and legal guardianship. The Bacula project was
| the first to avail of our fiduciary programme, and OpenSwarm underlines
| the continued developer interest in this service."

| About the OpenSwarm Project:
| Development of OpenSwarm has been started at the HATZIS
| Edelstahlbearbeitung GmbH. HATZIS is a family-owned and med-sized
| steel-engineering company in Bavaria, Germany, which provides to
| more than 300 companies construction and production services for
| highest quality components made of stainless steel.
| OpenSwarm is planned to be a holistic set of model-driven software
| development tools focused on the easy creation of powerful and
| business logic enriched applications in the field of Web- and
| data-centric solutions for industry, public sector and non-profit
| organisations. The generated software systems are implemented in
| Python and data is stored in PostgreSQL databases, so they can be
| hosted on almost any platform.
