The 2020 FLOSS roadmap v1 is a document that was collectively elaborated by 31 experts and contributors and published last December. It contains a set of predictions on how the free / libre / open source software ecosystem could evolve over the next ten years, a set of recommendations for public and private bodies on how to encourage its growth and leverage the benefits it can provide to the economy, and a set of in-depth studies on topics such as public policies, technological innovation, uses and employment.

In order to prepare the second edition of the roadmap, which will be published this fall, a call for comments and contributions has been sent on the www.2020flossroadmap.org website. A collaborative text annotation and commenting system has been set up in order to make it easy to everyone to make a contribution to the roadmap.

I hope you won’t mind we didn’t write a full-fledged press release, I can provide additional insight if you have questions. You will find additional information in the “about” section of the 2020flossroadmap.org website.
