 |  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.
