Hi !

The 10th issue of the "Brave GNU World" column is online now. It can be found on the GNU Webpage and its mirrors or follow the links at the end of this posting.

The "Brave GNU World" is a multilingual (English, German, French, Japanese and Spanish) monthly column that provides information about internal developments of the GNU Project and things of importance to the GNU community, while trying to give insights into the underlying philosophy. It is available online (see links below) or printed in Germany´s biggest GNU/Linux magazine, the "Linux Magazin".

If you would like to receive mail about new issues directly, you can subscribe to the "Brave GNU World" announcement mailinglist. Just send mail to with "subscribe" in the *body*. The mailinglist is only for announcements that are related to the "Brave GNU World" and is of very low volume (between 1 and 4 mails a month).

The tenth issue covers the following topics:

  • Userv (clean and secure change of user permissions)
  • Clobberd (monitor your user activity)
  • La51 (8051 (MCS-51) Cross-Compiler)
  • CUPS (a new Unix printing architecture)
  • SADP (another great CD player)
  • About the GNU GPL (why you shouldn´t accept someone calling the GPL "viral")

This column intends to provide a forum for all GNU maintainers, friends and associates and I am always open to suggestions. So if you

  • have questions about the GNU Project that might be of general interest
  • have a GNU Project and would like to improve its profile
  • would like to start a GNU Project you are looking for people to start it with
  • think something doesn't get the publicity it deserves
  • would like to see something made public

send mail to:

"Brave GNU World column@gnu.org"

This column is for everyone with an interest in Free Software, so don´t hesitate to contact me if your project is under the GPL/LGPL and you´d like to see it introduced here.
