At this early stage, there are a few things you can do: you can read about us at, you can contribute via the Free Software Foundation (who are assisting with the fund-building work) and if you represent an organization that wants to be part of the coalition, you can directly contact the Director of ESP, Ben Klemens, at

Coalition members, the internal planning page has been moved to here.
