13. Hosting

We would like to recommend using subversions.gnu.org as the CVS repository for your package, and using ftp.gnu.org as the standard FTP site. It is ok to use other machines if you wish. If you use a company's machine to hold the repository for your program, or as its ftp site, please put this statement in a prominent place on the site, so as to prevent people from getting the wrong idea about the relationship between the package and the company:

The programs <list of them> hosted here are free software packages
of the GNU Project, not products of <company name>.  We call them
"free software" because you are free to copy and redistribute them,
following the rules stated in the license of each package.  For more
information, see http://www.gnu.org/philosophy/free-sw.html.

If you are looking for service or support for GNU software, see
http://www.gnu.org/help/gethelp.html for suggestions of where to ask.

If you would like to contribute to the development of one of these
packages, contact the package maintainer or the bug-reporting address
of the package (which should be listed in the package itself), or look
on www.gnu.org for more information on how to contribute.
