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 found here:
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.
