Towards a distributed and multistakeholder infrastructure
“Let us save what remains: not by vaults and locks which fence them from the public eye and use in consigning them to the waste of time, but by such a multiplication of copies, as shall place them beyond the reach of accident.”
— Thomas Jefferson
In order to prevent information loss, and simplify access to humankind’s software heritage, we are building an international network of mirrors.
A mirror is a full copy of the Software Heritage universal source code archive, operated in agreement with, but independently from the Software Heritage organization.
This page lists the entities that have already signed a mirror agreement, and provides an overview of the technical and legal requirements to become part of the program.
We look forward to see a variety of institutions from all around the world becoming progressibely part of the mirror program.
