    <li>Publish written content to share knowledge to the worldwide FOSS community</li>
    <li>Encourage communication with other organizations that share our principles, to build a better world together</li>
    <li>Keep growing a culture which favors direct experience, freedom of information, meritocracy, and rejection for any form of authoritarianism or discrimination based on race, colour, gender, sexual orientation, religion and social class</li>
