Hello r/opensource!

[Framasoft](https://framasoft.org) (that is us!) is a small French non-profit (10 workers + 30 volunteers), that has been advertising Loose-Libre tool and its tradition to a French-speaking target market for 20+ years. 

We goal to stick small (we favor decentralization to ever-expanding enlargement), and we embody our hand made/artisanal manner of experimenting with the whole lot we do.

## What does Framasoft do?

We truly assume that Loose-Libre tool is without doubt one of the very important equipment to get to a Loose-Libre society. Because of this we deal with and give a contribution to numerous tasks that goal to empower other folks to get extra freedom of their virtual lives. 

Amongst the ones equipment are:
* 16 FOSS based totally web-services that we host (principally for our French-speaking target market) on our [Degooglify Internet website](https://degooglisons-internet.org/en/) ;
* many [talks, workshops, and participations to conventions](https://framatube.org/c/framaconf/movies) ;
* A [FLOSS directory](https://framalibre.org) ;
* A [blog](https://framablog.org), the place we proportion our view and the place a bunch of volunteers translate into French information from the English-speaking FLOSS global ;
* Many, many ressources to assist other folks and organizations of their transition to moral virtual equipment (guides, documentation, even card video games!) ;

To be told extra, take a look at our (more or less) translated [recap of 2022 here](https://framablog.org/2022/12/08/framasoft-2022-a-casserole-cooked-up-thanks-to-you-thanks-to-your-donations/).

## We expand PeerTube and Mobilizon

Within the English-speaking group, we’re most commonly recognized for growing 2 Loose-Libre and federated softwares:
* [Mobilizon](https://joinmobilizon.org/), a substitute for Fb parties and teams *sans* social options. We launched Mobilizon v3 final month, [check out our presentation en English here](https://framablog.org/2022/11/08/mobilizon-v3-find-events-and-groups-throughout-the-fediverse/) ;
* [PeerTube](https://joinpeertube.org/), a self-hosted video and live-streaming platform that provides p2p to video broadcasting so that you are not looking for Amazon data-center to host your movies. PeerTube v5 has simply launched (dec. thirteenth), [here is the complete guided tour](https://framablog.org/2022/12/13/peertube-v5-the-result-of-5-years-handcrafting/)!

For each and every of those tasks, **we now have one not-even-full-time developer who leads the code**, helped via different workers (on non-code comparable problems) and a group of individuals.

Framasoft is funded via donations (98.5% of our 2021 price range), principally grassroots donations (87% of the 2021 price range). As we principally keep up a correspondence in French, the vast majority of our donations comes from the French-speaking target market.

It signifies that PeerTube and Mobilizon, are most commonly funded via Frenchies for the sector to revel in.
