Commitment to Free Software

Sourceware is a Free Software hosting project for core toolchain and developer tools. Sourceware is maintained by volunteers. Hardware and bandwidth is provided by sponsors. The hosted projects themselves are independent.

It is our goal to offer a worry-free, friendly home for Free Software projects.

Sourceware organization

Sourceware is run by volunteers who can be contacted on the public mailinglist [inbox].

Or file an issue in the Sourceware Infrastructure bugzilla component.

There is also an irc channel #overseers on Overseers Open Office hours take place in the same irc channel every second Friday of the month at UTC 16:00.

Most projects hosted on Sourceware have their own admins managing project specific resources.

For issues with your sourceware, cygwin, gcc, account, please contact the private mailinglist
