Description

The Document Foundation

  • Is an independent self-governing meritocratic entity, created by a large group of Free Software advocates, in the form of a charitable Foundation under German law (gemeinn?tzige rechtsf?hige Stiftung des b?rgerlichen Rechts).

  • It continues to build on the foundation of the dedicated work by the OpenOffice.org Community.

  • It was created in the belief that the culture born of an independent Foundation brings out the best in contributors and will deliver the best software for users.

  • It is open to any individual who agrees with our core values and contributes to our activities.

  • It welcomes corporate participation, e.g. by sponsoring individuals to work as equals alongside other contributors in the community.
