1. Funding GNU Fortran

James Craig Burley (craig@jcb-sc.com), the original author of g77, stopped working on it in September 1999 (He has a web page at http://world.std.com/%7Eburley.)

GNU Fortran is currently maintained by Toon Moene (toon@moene.indiv.nluug.nl), with the help of countless other volunteers.

As with other GNU software, funding is important because it can pay for needed equipment, personnel, and so on.

The FSF provides information on the best way to fund ongoing development of GNU software (such as GNU Fortran) in documents such as the "GNUS Bulletin". Email gnu@gnu.org for information on funding the FSF.

Another important way to support work on GNU Fortran is to volunteer to help out. Work is needed on documentation, testing, porting to various machines, and in some cases, coding (although major changes planned for version 0.6 make it difficult to add manpower to this area). Email gcc@gcc.gnu.org to volunteer for this work.

See section Funding Free Software, for more information.
