New SPI Web Pages

>> News

  Software in the Public Interest, Inc. is pleased to announce its new web 
pages.  They can be found at <http://www.spi-inc.org/>.  SPI is a non profit 
organization that was founded to help projects in developing software for 
the community.  Several projects are currently being supported through 
monetary and hardware donations that have been made to SPI.  As SPI is a 
non profit organization, all donations to it and the projects it supports 
are tax deductible.

>> Projects

Projects that are affiliated with and receive support from SPI are:

 o Berlin                   <http://www.berlin-consortium.org/>
 o Debian                   <http://www.debian.org/>
 o GNOME                    <http://www.gnome.org/>
 o Linux Standard Base      <http://www.linuxbase.org/>
 o Open Source              <http://www.opensource.org/>
 o Open Hardware            <http://www.openhardware.org/>

These projects use the monetary and legal infrastructure available to them 
through SPI to accomplish their individual goals.  SPI serves as a guiding 
organization only, and does not actively control any of the projects it is 
affiliated with.

>> Trademarks

SPI currently owns several trademarks and certification marks.  Although 
these trademarks are owned by SPI, they are managed by the projects that 
they are associated with.

The Open Source Certification Mark is managed by Eric Raymond on behalf of 
the free software community.

The Open Hardware Certification Mark is managed by Vincent Renardias.

The Debian Trademark is managed by Debian.
