This is with great pleasure that we are opening registration for SFD
2018. This year Software Freedom Day is happening on Saturday September
15th everywhere around the world (or almost). While the wiki was ready
to create and update your event page we did a soft launch for the
registration at the beginning of the month and have had so far 2
registration emails which didn't reach the team leaders. If this happens
to you check your SPAM folder and eventually email us on SFD-discuss
list. Apart from that everything seems to be running smoothly.
On the sponsors side as we have received questions in the sfd-discuss
mailing list so we would like to thank Linode and Canonical for
providing hosting, mailing list and some technical support for longer
than we can remember. On the funding part however we haven't received
any money from anyone for the 4th consecutive year due to relocation of
our organization and various other issues. We do however want to thank
Google for their continuous support and hope we will resume receiving
funding very soon.
So as usual registering an SFD event is as simple as 1-2-3:
1. Create a wiki account if you don't already have one
2. Create a wiki page in your area under
http://wiki.softwarefreedomday.org/2018/ then country/city/team
3. Go to https://www.softwarefreedomday.org/cgi-bin/register.py and let
us know exactly who and where you are.
At the end of all this you'll appear on the SFD 2018 Map here with all
the other teams https://www.softwarefreedomday.org/map/ and be easy to spot.
If you need further information we have an exhaustive guide here at
http://wiki.softwarefreedomday.org/StartGuide for newcomers and for the
others who need help, and the SFD-Discuss mailing list is probably the
best place to get prompt support (
We have also the SFD countdown ready and in 7 languages. You can find
further information here:
So all the best and get ready for Software Freedom Day 2018.
Thank you very much and happy SFD!
