The Simple End-User Linux (SEUL) Project
is a large organization trying to guide many other groups in the direction
of making Linux better for the end-user. Though it has several smaller projects
ongoing within the group itself (eg seul-edu
and seul-pub), most of the work is done
by groups that fall under the umbrella of SEUL. The end goal of SEUL is to have
a comprehensive suite of high-quality applications
available under the GPL for
the Linux platform, and a broader base of educated users around the world
who understand why free software is better.
Seul Supported Projects
Though these projects are not specifically Seul projects, Seul provides some limited support for them.
One of the goals of the SEUL project is to encourage the development
of user friendly software for Linux, and more generally for high-quality
free Linux software of all kinds.
SEUL machine is only somewhat loaded these days, and
several people have offered to help host things if more help is needed.
Specifically, Seul is looking for projects that:
- Are useful to the world and need homes.
- Are useful to end-users.
- Are oriented towards end-users.
- Are oriented towards educational users. (Seul-Edu)
- Are oriented towards scientific users. (Seul-Sci)
- Advocacy Projects
They don't have to be licensed freely, but they need to be non-commercial
(that is, not dealing with money at all). Often, offering a good system for
hosting can be a good enough bribe to start an author thinking about making
his license more free. (For instance, Seul succeeded at this with the WXftp
Of course, projects with free licenses are preferred over those without.
We can host any part of the proposed project. We can host:
- FTP Sites
- Mirror Sites
- Mailing Lists
- CVS (pserver and anon)
- DNS (primary or secondary)
If you find a suitable project, feel free to let
know about them (and
cc firstname.lastname@example.org if you like),
or contact them yourself (and cc arma and/or
seul) if you're familiar with how they work. If there's any question
about commercial/etc issues, please contact
