Arról, hogy ez miért fontos és miért kellene az iránta érdeklődőknek ezzel törődnie, arról így ír a projekt:
[...] The AlmaLinux Foundation (Delaware Reg. 5561017) was created as a 501(c)(6) non-profit (the same as the Linux Foundation) in order to put OWNERSHIP of the OS, the Intellectual Property and the direction of the project into the hands of the community. By joining as a member (100% free for community members) you have the right and the ability to vote on board members and the direction of the project and other decisions as they will come up in the future.
We all own AlmaLinux now and no one can change that. Forever. Not CloudLinux, not any other corporation or anyone else. Our fate and future are in the hands of every member and is ours alone to control. We're no longer bound by one person, group or entity. It can not be bought nor sold, nor transferred or fought about.
Who cares? You should. Anyone and everyone who is a member of the open source community and cares about the ideals of freedom, communal ownership and transparency. Anyone who lives by the principles of FOSS and anyone who relies on them--whether you're running a single web server for your own personal needs or a company delivering a product for hundreds of thousands of customers.
