European public services should actively contribute to the long-term sustainability of the open source software they use, by supporting long-term maintenance projects rather than purely focusing on new projects. This is one of the key findings of the FOSSEPS Critical Software Study Report.

If nation-state levels of resources are to be directed at software, it makes sense for those resources to be directed at software that then becomes a public good.

Unless such states want to buy billions of dollars of software from me, then we should definitely go with making me unspeakably rich for no good reason. Nobody else though.

@humanetech @EC_OSPO Thanks for mentioning this. You're right, it's good. Even though this is about public services, I think the recommendations themselves extend to private industry as well.
