My friend just gave me a link to Mellisa Drapper blog that has a posting about International Thank A FOSS Volunteer Day. Her idea about International Thank A FOSS Volunteer Day is a good one. We should thank the people who voluntarily contribute their time, energy and mind to their chosen open source project. So with this post I support Mellisa Drapper and declare today, 18th of April, as â€œInternational Thank A FOSS Volunteer Dayâ€.
Because today is an â€œInternational Thank A FOSS Volunteer Dayâ€, as an elected team contact/leader of Ubuntu-ID, I would like to thank:
