Hi all,

Georg Greve sent me this, but it seems he didn't send it to the whole

back it?

The more companies, agencies, organizations and governmental officials
are backing this recommendation, the more impact it is likely to have.

Therefore the FSF Europe is calling to interested parties to support
this document and allow being listed as supporting party. If you (your
organization, company, agency) wish to be listed, please send mail to

Since the discussion on the 6th framework programme is already quite
advanced, we're planning to send this recommendation out asap, our
final deadline to get into the list of initial supporting parties is
29th of April.

Georg Greve
FSF Europe, President
