Build Status standard-readme compliant reuse compliant

We’re working to make managing copyrights and licenses in free and open source software easier. This is the website for a guide of best practices, meant to demonstrate how to add copyright and license information to a project in ways which allow for more automation.


There’s no installation here, but you may try running hugo in the site/ directory to generate the website when testing locally. Typically, we let our Drone CI build and deploy the website for us.


Go to https://reuse.software/ and enjoy :-) If your project follows the reuse guidelines, we encourage you to show that in your README.md and similar! Just copy this badge into your readme:

[![reuse compliant](https://reuse.software/badge/reuse-compliant.svg)](https://reuse.software/)


We’d love to get feedback on these practices, ideally in the form of pull requests which we can discuss around. To be able to contribute in this way, you need an account on git.fsfe.org, which you can get by going to our account creation page. This will sign you up for a volunteer account with the FSFE.

Once you’ve registered, your account needs to be activated. Just shoot a mail to contact@fsfe.org or directly to jonas@fsfe.org saying you’ve registered and would like to be activated. As soon as your account is activated, you can set a username and proceed to login to git.fsfe.org.

We also accept and appreciate feedback by creating issues in the project (requires the same account creation), or by sending e-mail to, again, contact@fsfe.org or jonas@fsfe.org.
