Read our latest blog post to find out why Snowdrift.coop would make an excellent addition to the @fsf High Priority Free Software Projects list, heading a new key area of focus, Sustainability and Growth. #FSF #FreeSoftware #FreeLibreOpen #SustainableUserFreedom https://blog.snowdrift.coop/2021-high-priority-free-software-project-list/
Snowdrift.coop work lately has been busy but all behind-the-scenes, little to show yet publicly. Update from this week: successful transfer of all our servers to OSUOSL https://osuosl.org after 18 months of on/off planning. Closing our AWS account. This enables the Snowdrift team to not worry about sysadmin issues and focus solely on getting launched!
Snowdrift.coop will have a few representatives (a couple of whom are giving talks on tangential subjects) at #LibrePlanet2020
May also have a chance for some meetup, let us know if you'll be there and want to connect!

Thanks to partnership with @OSUOSLhttps://osuosl.org we are finally getting our core servers and systems more solid and reliable!
Dealing with those things has been a major distraction and obstacle (costing us months to years even). We're now going to have that stuff in place as a stronger foundation for the rest of our development and organizing!
(Longer blog post coming once the process is farther along)
New blog post (finally, a year late) announcing our new forum: https://blog.snowdrift.coop/new-forum
New homepage with fancy animated video is now live at https://snowdrift.coop
We only spent about 2 years of (on and off) work on it, so don't expect perfection. ;)
Hopefully, we'll get around to writing blog post about it sometime soon.
Primary driver of the overhaul is announcing our new forum (also highly adjusted to be the best it can be):
All connected policies including Code of Conduct have been overhauled.
Feedback always welcome. Coming soon: blog posts, more announcements…
