|Applications to get patient management software certified as meeting a quality standard seem to need a company name and address.|
What I wrote on the wiki in terms of Planning, Operation and Control is:
Preamble: While an occasional Free / Libre and Open Source Software (FLOSS) project is commercially-owned, the present one is owned by its historical contributors under a relationship that is inconstant over time. Traditional business constructs including corporate entity, executive branches, departments, human resource managers, job descriptions, employer-employee relationships and reporting relationships are impractical and inapplicable. Moreover no contractual relationship exists either among the project owners or between the project owners and those who would use the software.
Practically-speaking though, it may be inescapable to need to offer some identifying information on the application form.
For "Company name" I was thinking to put
(voluntary project organization) GNUmed.org
For "Address", the web site gnumed.org *currently* lists
but alternatively the software itself resides at Savannah and is therefore the geographic place from which the business of managing and obtaining the software is being done so I *could* put the WHOIS which offers a Free Software Foundation address, however I should not do so without first talking to them about it.
Shall I ask the FSF for their suggestions as to how I would get this handled? I understand that they might offer some general guidance given they have developed an expertise in avoiding and managing legal problems.
