This is a list of people who is offering support services for free software for a fee or in some cases at no charge.

To have your information added to this directory, please send an e-mail to service[at]vedova[dot]org.

The information comes from the people who asked to be listed. We do not include any information we know to be false, but we cannot check out any of the information; we are transmitting it to you as it was given to us and do not promise it is correct. Also, this is not an endorsement of the people listed here. We have no opinions and usually no information about the abilities of any specific person. We provide this list to enable you to contact service providers and decide for yourself whether to hire one.

Before Vedova Foundation will list your name in this Service Directory, we ask that you agree informally to the following terms:

  1. You will not restrict (except by copyleft) the use or distribution of any software, documentation, or other technical information you supply anyone in the course of modifying, extending, or supporting free software. This includes any information specifically designed to ameliorate the use of free software.
  2. You will not take advantage of contact made through the Service List to advertise an unrelated business (e.g., sales of proprietary information). You may spontaneously mention your availability for general consulting, but you should not promote a specific unrelated business unless the client asks.

Please include some indication of your rates, because otherwise users have nothing to go by. Please put each e-mail address inside “<>”. Please put nothing else inside “<>”. Thanks!
