The Software Freedom Conservancy has announced
that the Samba project (which, like BusyBox, is another of SFC's member projects) will be engaging in license compliance efforts with the organization. In addition, it announced a new "GPL Compliance Project for Linux Developers" that is working with seven Linux kernel copyright holders to work on compliance for their copyrights in the kernel. "Matthew Garrett, an accomplished Linux kernel developer, was the first to put forward his copyrights as part of the GPL Compliance Project for Linux Developers, and was quickly joined by six other individuals. In a statement today, Matthew noted: 'For some time, many Linux kernel copyright holders have offered our moral support to the BusyBox enforcement efforts through Conservancy, but didn't have the ability to formalize that support. I'm glad to put my copyrights forward for this new initiative, and welcome any Linux kernel copyright holders who wish to join us to reach out to Conservancy via <email@example.com>.'
