State of the shared GNU infrastructure

Celebrate 40 years of GNU!

Today marks the fortieth anniversary of Richard Stallman's initial announcement of the plan to develop the GNU operating system. I was set to attend the GNU 40th anniversary celebration and hacker meeting event in Biel/Bienne, Switzerland, and was looking forward to spending the day with fellow free software hackers and activists, and also talk about the state of the shared GNU infrastructure and how you can get involved and help. Unfortunately, I had to cancel my trip at the last minute due to a family emergency, so I'm publishing this talk on my personal site instead.

In this talk we learn about important pieces of infrastructure of the GNU Project hosted by the Free Software Foundation for development and maintenance of GNU programs (though, many are available to free non-GNU programs as well) and also about how to get involved to contribute and help maintain these pieces of infrastructure.
