05 September 2017

Die Free Software Foundation Europe (FSFE) veröffentlicht heute, als Teil der "Koalition Freies Wissen", ihre Wahlprüfsteine für die Wahl zum 19. Deutschen Bundestag am 24. September 2017. Zusammenfassend schneiden Grüne und Linke positiv ab. Beide Parteien scheinen die zentrale Rolle von Software zu verstehen und sprechen sich, wie auch schon zur letzten Bundestagswahl, sowohl für den Einsatz als auch für die aktive Entwicklung von Freier Software aus. Im Vergleich dazu sind die Positionen von CDU/CSU, der SPD und der FDP eher zurückhaltend und oft mit Einschränkungen verbunden.
