free software
Used with preference over the term “open source,” to refer to the group of practices that relate to sharing software and distributing ownership of copyright, development, and management. Typically the word “free” in this formulation refers to the “freedom” that this approach to technology provides both users and developers of technology, rather than the cost of the software licensing/distribution (which is typically “free” as well by virtue of basic economic pressure.)

A popular version control system developed for use by the Linux Kernel project to manage source-code versioning and collaboration.
