Subject: Announcement of OFSET

Initial Announcement of OFSET, the Organization for Free Software in Education
and Teaching.

Free software in education is highly important.  This is why several members of
the free software community have established OFSET, Organization for Free
Software in Education and Teaching.  This organization will try to raise funds
for development of free educational software, promote development of free
educational software and coordinate the development of specific projects.

OFSET is committed to the idea of free software as defined by the Free Software
Foundation.  This is why we have chosen to promote the GNU General Public
License, the GPL, as the license that free educational software should use.
