Protocols & principles

To be added xxx xxx

the ‘tyranny of openness’ in FLOSS needs to be displaced in the world of libre software - and thus specifically, in - by systems of privileges and obligations, under protocols, that defend and cultivate the commons (that is, the stack of spaces provisioned by and govern legitimate participation in the commons.
A commons is constituted through provisioning, stewarding and enjoying . . . and enjoying (aka mobilising, using, deploying) the commons comes under rules too, just as do provisioning and stewarding. This is not ‘free to do whatever you like’, or ‘free to exploit without making a contribution’; it is ‘free to cultivate, respect, amplify, safeguard, celebrate and enjoy what is held in the commons’.
