Subject: Organization name?
Message: I'm trying to update the Wikipedia Comparison of vector graphics editors page but don't know who to put as the "Creator" or parent company. I know that Inkscape is a very grassroots-organized project, but do the founders and website owners have a specific name?

Subject: RE: Organization name?
Message: The organization name is the same as the product name, as is the case with most Open Source projects. The product, being GPL'ed, doesn't have "owners" as such. There are, however, a core set of developers, the list of whom you can find on the sourceforge site.

This manual is my scratch pad and development site for the Inkscape documentation project. Documentation that appears here may eventually work its way into the official Inkscape documentation, and changes to the Inkscape documentation may work it's way into this draft. It is a work in progress, so please don't mind the mess. Anything that appears here is GPL'ed under the usual licenses for GPL documentation, yada, yada, yada, or has been dedicated to the public domain. For a list of those elements that have been placed in the public domain, please click here.
