GLM bylaws update coming
We are changing the address of the legal organization GNU/Linux Matters and this requires an update of our bylaws.
In practice the official mail address of GLM (in Toulouse, France) has simply been used as a re-direct to the current address (in Mennecy, France), for a little while. Now it looks like the new address is here to stay so we are updating the bylaws.
I know "bylaws" sounds like a somewhat obscure administrative paper, but in fact it plays a major role, by establishing us as a legal entity. It has legal value (you can sue us for not following them) and it gives us the ability to act as a moral person. (More in our FAQ).
Now is an opportunity to change anything in there. Because the paperwork load is high (let's just say there's a quite a bunch of putain de signed photocopies to hand in) we're not going to do this often. If you have suggestions, propositions, etc, do pop in.
The current bylaws can be downloaded at
Note that although we keep both languages updated, only the French version is law-binding.
I can remember there's a slight modification pending (calling the FSF the Free Software Foundation even in French) but apart from our contact e-mail and address I don't intend to change anything else.
Suggestions of any kind are welcome. The paperwork should be on its way at the end of the week.
