Free Software Foundation
The freedom—and the ability—to build on the work of others is core to free software. Also central is the ability to be nimble and future-proof, to not be hostage to the whims of specific owners or authors. The relatively short history of computers already holds a tragically large graveyard of software and formats buried too deep for anyone to learn from.
A comprehensive, permanent archive of free software like Software Heritage is exactly what we need to make all current works available as a foundation for the constructions of the future.
