The purpose of Manchester Free Software is to promote the Free Software

This meeting will be a series of discussions on the Free Software
implications of the following:

* Nvidia contributing to Nouveau
Nvidia Corporation have recently contributed patches to the free
software Nouveau driver.  This marks a massive shift in the company's
attitude towards free software, an attitude which was previously
criticised by Linus Torvalds through the mode of finger gestures.

* gNewSense 3.1 released
An update to the FSF-approved GNU/Linux distribution, gNewSense has
been released.

* FSF certification of new 3D printer, LulzBot TAZ 3
The FSF has certified another LulzBot 3D printer.  The manufacturers,
Aleph Objects, were the first company to achieve certification of
hardware in the FSF's Respects Your Freedom program.

Feel free to raise similar items in the meeting for discussion.

The meeting will be followed by informal discussion and socialising in
the bar opposite, Common <http://www.aplacecalledcommon.co.uk/>.

The meeting will take place at the usual venue of Madlab, details above.
The venue provides wifi.

Around the venue there are parking meter bays that become zero
cost after 8pm on Tuesday so you will have to pay up until then and the
maximum stay is 2 hours BUT MAKE SURE YOU VERIFY ALL THIS on parking.

There are paid parking lots around the venue, they are marked by a blue
P in this OpenStreetMap centred on Madlab

If you can’t decide otherwise then park in Manchester Arndale
