GNU ethical repository criteria

We developed these criteria to judge services for hosting parts of the GNU operating system, but we recommend them to everyone that wants to use a service for publicly hosting free source code (and optionally executable programs too). The criteria emphasize protection of privacy, functionality without nonfree JavaScript, compatibility with copyleft licensing and philosophy, and not rejecting any users.

GNU also maintains evaluations of code-hosting sites by the standards of these criteria. If you'd like to help us evaluate more sites or update existing evaluations as sites improve (or worsen) their scores, join the repo-criteria-discuss mailing list.
