I read with great interest the proposal to create a public archive of software artifacts and associated metadata as a way to grow a universal body of scientific and technical knowledge. As Editor-in-Chief of IEEE Software I wish to express my wholehearted support for the Software Heritage project. The vision of IEEE Software is building the community of leading software practitioners. The long-term preservation of our community’s work and achievements can be an important element for realizing our vision.
