"GNU.org on its front page under the heading "GNUs Flashes" says "Please support the FreeDevelopers.net project. FreeDevelopers.net is a democratic entity for the development of free software," with links to the FreeDevelopers.net site."

GNU.org elaborates on its link page, http://www.gnu.org/links/links:

"FreeDevelopers is a democratic entity for the development of free software. The free company, probably the first of its kind in the world, will be owned and run by developers worldwide on a democratic basis in a sacred trust for the benefit and protection of the world's citizens. It will pay all developers to work on free software, and all developers will receive company shares and stock options, also. All software of the free company will be licensed under the General Public License (GPL) and remain free/open forever, because all software must be available to all current and future generations of developers, so that they can be the first line of defense to protect the world from the inevitable tyrannical tendencies of proprietary software."
