I'm glad to be joining the Assembly. Thank you to everyone involved in
creating this space.
I and the GNU Radio project support the GNU Social contract and the
collaborative and accountable goals of the GNU Assembly. Can I please be
added as an individual supporter?

I'm joining as representative of the GNU Radio project. We restructured
ourselves last year into an unincorporated association with a General
Assembly of members nominated out of the community, a Board elected by
the General Assembly, and a President elected by the Board. The initial
structure is heavily inspired by the KDE e.V. organization. We also
found the FOSS Governance Collection a useful resource. I am the current
president. Elections will be held every two years. We have had several
fiscal sponsors including our own Foundation, the FSF, and now the SETI
Institute. We use the Condorcet Internet Voting Service (MIT licenced).
Our Articles of Association, By-Laws, and formal voting record can be
I've been a volunteer with the GNU Radio project since 2015 and a lead
since 2018. We have code maintainers for the main and maintenance
branches and leads for specific efforts. We are in the process of
forming a standing Code of Conduct committee to replace our ad-hoc
current system. We currently use the Contributor Covenant Code of
Conduct, but are working to expand and improve it using Otter
Technology's references and training.
When the Assembly supports member projects GNU Radio would like to
formally join. We've already decided unanimously as a board and have the
support of our General Assembly.
