Besides our policy work and projects, we also shine light on our community and its members because only together with our community, the FSFE forms a movement across Europe to build a society based on users' and software freedom. We report about the events that we participated and organised, from policy meetings to our web-a-thons. We finish with some numbers of our outreach-sections and an outlook into the next year. </p>

<p><strong>To ensure that developers can concentrate on their actual work, we have further developed the REUSE helper tool that automates and assists with some of these steps.</strong> It can be included in existing continuous integration (CI) workflows which can test different parameters of a project automatically. On top of that, the REUSE API, a new web service, can test repositories and offer a corresponding badge based on their REUSE compliance. Check out <a href="https://reuse.software/dev/">the website</a> for more information.</p>

<p>New European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen announced to concretise her European digital agenda after her first 100 days in office, in particular "legislation on the human and ethical implications of artificial intelligence". But among other proposals, we also expect more details about the planned updates to the E-Commerce Directive into a new "Digital Services Act" and the Network and Information Security Directive (NISD). The FSFE will keep a close eye on these proposals to guarantee a safe environment for Free Software in Europe. </p>
