<p>If you want to use the <code>div class="captioned"</code> to display
a picture like the above, please specify a <code>style="max-width:

<p>If you want to center the picture, add the <code>center-block</code>
class. If you want to make it float on the left, add the class
<code>left</code>, and <code>right</code> to make it float… to the
right! So, if you want to have a captioned picture on the right, you can
add <code>div class="captioned right" style="max-width: Xpx; width:
Y%;"</code></p>

<p>Here's an example code for a right-side picture taking 1/3 of the width:</p>

<h1>Software freedom in Europe 2018</h1>



<p newsteaser="yes"><em>"Software freedom in Europe"</em> is the yearly report of the Free Software Foundation Europe (FSFE). In one document, it gives you a breakdown of important things the FSFE has done and achieved during the last 12 months. In the 2018 report, you will read about our electoral campaigns, our input on the European Union's copyright reform, and about our successful outreach in demanding publicly financed software be made publicly available under a Free Software licence. You will also get insights about the events we (co-)organised and about our community and groups that helped us with these achievements. Finally, we will display some numbers showing what resources we counted on, and giving an outlook for the next year.</p>
<h2>About the Free Software Foundation Europe</h2>

<p>The Free Software Foundation Europe (FSFE) is a <strong>charity that empowers people to control technology</strong> by enabling access to software and its source code. The rights to use, study, share, and improve this software are essential to guarantee equal participation in democracies of the 21st century.</p>

<p>On the other hand, little is known about how much public code is already a reality in many public administrations throughout Europe. To change this, we shed light on outstanding examples, to learn from each other and to put positive pressure on decision makers. We started a <strong>series of expert interviews</strong> in different areas to learn more about their experiences and their motivation, as well as their challenges: Francesca Bria, CTO of Barcelona, elaborates on how <a href="https://news/2018/news-20180705-01.html">Free Software helps build a more democratic, inclusive and sustainable digital society</a>; Elena Muñoz Salinero, who leads the Technology Transfer Centre of the Spanish Government, speaks about <a href="https://news/2018/news-20180601-01.html">best practices between public administrations in the re-use of software solutions</a>, by publishing code under Free Software licenses; and Timo Aarnio, GIS expert at National Land Survey of Finland which coordinates the development of Oskari, <a href="https://news/2018/news-20180917-01.html">explains development practices under public funding within a network with over 38 organisations from both the public and private sector</a>.</p>

<p>As our next step, <strong>we are releasing a brochure</strong> with more than 20 pages to be used in the time before the European Parliament's election in mid-2019. The brochure is directed towards decision makers in politics and administrations: To help them understand Free Software, to explain the benefits of public code for democracy and IT security, and to point out the first steps to positively change procurement and legislation in favor of Free Software. We will not only use this brochure for the European Parliament's election, but also for distribution to decision-makers inside public institutions to help them understand the importance of Free Software in modernising our digital infrastructure. If you would like to support this and other "Public Money? Public Code!"-activities, sign the <a href="https://publiccode.eu/openletter/">open letter</a> and help us with your <a href="https://fsfe.org/donate/">donation</a>.</p>

<p>However, offering expertise to decision-makers is only one factor. It is just as important to apply pressure by raising awareness inside our society and offering people <strong>tools to explain the benefits of public code to each other</strong>. For the overall campaign's success, it is essential to empower activists and organisations from all over the world to become a part of this movement. One key to achieving this is to offer material and explanations in a person's mother tongue. Thanks to the priceless help of our outstanding volunteers, we have managed to translate the campaign website into 18 languages. The corresponding <a href="https://publiccode.eu/#about">popular campaign video</a> is dubbed into six different languages (English, French, Italian, German, Portuguese and Russian) and offers subtitles in a total of 15 languages. This way, we enable <strong>more than 1.5 billion people</strong> to learn about "Public Money, Public Code" in their language. </p>

With amendment 143 and 150 of the current copyright reform proposal, we now have at least an exclusion for “open source software developing platforms (..) within the meaning of this Directive”. However, the council proposed this exclusion to only be valid for “non-commercial open source software developing platforms”.</p>

<h3 id="REUSE">The REUSE Initiative</h3>

<p>The FSFE aims to support developers by helping them understand the legal implications of reusing a given piece of Free Software, and how to comply with these legal requirements by adding copyright and license information. To achieve this, the FSFE has embarked on our <a href="https://reuse.software">REUSE Initiative</a>, which introduces a set of best practices for license information in ways that not only humans can read, but computers as well, helping to automate licensing. These guidelines have been in place since December 2017, and FSFE is proud to have contributed them under CC-0 licensing terms to the OpenChain Curriculum, a project that helps companies understand best practices supporting their compliance efforts.</p>
<p>In September, the Free University of Bozen-Bolzano published a study that was funded by the FSFE in order for us to better understand the impact of the REUSE Initiative, and how it could be improved upon. Researchers analyzed a set of GitHub projects and the extent to which they respect REUSE guidelines, discovering that compliance is currently lackluster. While this can be attributed to the relatively recent availability of our guidelines, the study also found them overly complex. Accordingly, the next step by the REUSE Initiative to provide support to developers in their efforts to include license information will be to further simplify the guidelines and to provide additional tools for developers, which can include, for example, the so-called <a href="https://github.com/idm-suedtirol/reuse">“flight rules” developed by IDM-Südtirol</a>. The FSFE is eager to work with partners from industry and research to improve these guidelines in order to see increased compliance in the future, and greatly appreciates all feedback that can help us make this a reality.</p>

<p>At the FSFE, <strong>we believe that Free Software and Open Standards should be a topic in all elections</strong>, be they on a European, national, regional, or local level. To influence the discourse and the agenda pre-election in favour of Free Software, we run <a href="https://fsfe.org/campaigns/elections">electoral campaigns</a>, where we collect and highlight information about the candidates and political parties who participate, and shed light on how they stand on Free Software. This practice can assist voters who care about Free Software and Open Standards with their voting decisions, by allowing them to understand which candidates support our cause towards a free society. After the elections, we will stay in contact with decision-makers and those who are committed to raising their voices for Free Software.</p>

<p>In 2018, the FSFE <a href="https://fsfe.org/news/2018/news-20180302-01">ran an Ask Your Candidates campaign</a> in the forefront of the Italian elections by sending a set of questions to the participating political parties and <a href="https://fsfe.org/campaigns/askyourcandidates/201803-italy-general-elections">publishing their answers</a> afterwards. These questions aimed to clarify the various parties' positions on <strong>the use of Free Software in public administrations</strong>, a subject already present in Italian jurisprudence by way of Article 68 and Article 69 of the Code of the Digital Administration.</p>

Messages full of love declarations, sweetened with photos and artwork dedicated to the countless people out there contributing to Free Software every day, be it in the form of code, translations, documentation, community work, design, or management of projects. <strong>Thank you very much for having shared your love once more!</strong></p>

<p>This year, to monitor the online popularity of the day's celebration, our intern Jan Weymeirsch wrote a scraper in GNU R to <strong>scrape trending data from social media</strong> and <a href="https://git.fsfe.org/janwey/ilfs-data">published it as a Free Software tool</a>. We used this scraper to compile results about the quantity of toots and tweets using the hashtag #ilovefs and analysed their corresponding metadata as well. We then used this data to create a word-board that showed which Free Software had been the most popular that users were sharing the love with.</p>

<p>In July, we combined <a href="https://wiki.fsfe.org/Events/LSMandCommunityMeeting2018">our annual community meeting</a> with the FSFE's presence at the Libre Software Meeting (aka Rencontres Mondiales du Logiciel Libre) in Strasbourg, France. The Libre Software Meeting is a community-driven Free Software meeting in France, and the FSFE had the chance to run its own freedom-related track during the conference. Our community meeting is the <strong>annual event to bring together our community across Europe</strong> for a weekend to discuss and set the FSFE's agenda for the months to come. </p>

<p>In April, the FSFE led its <a href="https://fsfe.org/news/2018/news-20180530-02">annual Free Software Legal and Licensing Workshop (LLW)</a>, a 3-day conference in Barcelona, Spain, and a <strong>meeting point for world-leading legal experts to remove legal barriers for Free Software adoption</strong>, as well as to debate issues and best practices surrounding Free Software licences. In 2018, an estimated 120 legal experts enjoyed an unprecedented amount of parallel tracks and interactive sessions designed to dive into the most contentious topics in the legal world of Free Software.</p>

<p>In January, the FSFE partnered up again with Open Forum Europe for <a href="https://fsfe.org/news/2018/news-20180215-01">the third edition of the European Free Software Policy Meeting in Brussels</a>, at the heart of European decision-making. The aim of the meeting was to <strong>shed light on topics important for Free Software in public policy all over Europe</strong>, and to exchange experience for policy action within different regions to help political decision-makers understand how software freedom is related to other freedoms in our society, as well as the economic impact of Free Software. This year, 17 different groups were represented at the European Free Software Policy Meeting, from national Free Software groups to public sector representatives and international organisations.</p>

<h3 id="care">Code of Conduct and the CARE team</h3>

<p>Disagreement and possible conflicts are part of any debate in every community. This is not inherently bad; quite the opposite, in the FSFE's community, we understand differences of opinions to be fundamental in the democratic process, and important to shape the directions of a community-driven organisation like the FSFE. But no matter the dispute at stake, <strong>all participants should at all times feel at ease to participate and express their opinion</strong>, and to do so without fearing any form of attack, reprisal, or harassment.</p>

<p>It has always been an aim for our community to offer a friendly and peaceful environment for every participant at the FSFE's events and in its infrastructure, online and offline. Since last year, we have officially codified this in our <a href="https://fsfe.org/about/codeofconduct">Code of Conduct</a>. To further ensure its availability and enforcement, we created a <a href="https://fsfe.org/about/codeofconduct#CARE">CARE team</a> at the beginning of this year. Whenever you encounter a situation in which our Code of Conduct was breached, do not hesitate to <strong>get in touch with our central CARE team.</strong></p>
