Conservancy Welcomes Homebrew as a Member Project
February 22, 2016
Software Freedom Conservancy proudly announces the addition of Homebrew, software package manager for Apple's OS X operating system as its newest member project. Homebrew is now one of the dozens of free and open source software projects who call Conservancy their non-profit corporate home.
“Homebrew is excited to join Conservancy together with so many great other open source projects that we rely on," said Mike McQuaid, Homebrew maintainer since 2009. "Conservancy will help our project 'grow up' and give us the stability around critical services and raised funds that we need.” McQuaid also recorded the video here to share his thoughts on why Homebrew is joining Conservancy, and to support Conservancy's fundraising campaign.
“We are excited to have Homebrew join Conservancy,” said Karen M. Sandler, Conservancy's Executive Director. "Homebrew provides a much-needed free software package management solution for OS X users. We're happy that they're becoming a part of the Conservancy family, and we look forward to providing them with the infrastructure and support they need to continue their development."
Homebrew is a software package manager for Apple's OS X operating system. Homebrew installs the free and open source software that OS X users need that Apple didn't install by default.
