What do you anticipate the easy parts will be?

  • Gathering information on the FSF itself, which seems quite open and navigable.

What do you anticipate the hard parts will be?

  • Accurately describing the relationship between the FSF and its various sponsored projects.

How will you overcome both?

Through the wide variety of free information available about both the organization and project, as well as connections to their community (IRC, email, etc…)

If something goes wrong, what contingencies do you have in place?

Ask for help in IRC.

When will your group meet regularly outside of class time?

Any day we don’t have class (Monday/Wednesday/Friday), as well as virtually through the internets.
