Criteria for projects

A project can be considered to be under the FreeCulture.org umbrella if it meets the following criteria:

  • The project must fit within the objectives of the free culture movement, i.e., it must support the creation or discovery of freely licensed cultural works, or the liberation of existing proprietary content.
  • It is possible for new contributors to join development (if applicable) and content creation (if applicable)
  • The project has a clear policy to not tolerate abuse, harassment, trolling, or other abusive behavior (an example is the Contributor Covenant)
  • The project maintainers agree to provide updates on significant milestones for the FreeCulture.org newsletter. These updates are collaboratively edited prior to publication.

Projects may utilize the following freeculture.org shared resources, as appropriate:

If maintainers have need for more resources not currently provided, see the shared resources page for information on how to get access to the server and become a maintainer for new services (which need to have potential use beyond the project they're set up for).

Projects may be archived from this page if they're deemed inactive (e.g., no updates submitted to newsletter within a year).
