PLUME - FEATHER is a non-profit project created to Promote economicaL, Useful and Maintained softwarE For the Higher Education And THE Research communities. The site references software, mainly Free/Libre Open Source Software (FLOSS) from French universities and national research organisations, (CNRS, INRA...), laboratories or departments. Plume means feather in French. The main goals of PLUME – FEATHER are: • promote the community's own developments, • contribute to the developement and sharing FLOSS (Free/Libre Open Source Software) information, experiences and expertise in the community, • bring together FLOSS experts and knowledgeable people to create a community, • foster and facilitate FLOSS use, deployment and contribution in the higher education and the research communities. PLUME - FEATHER was initiated by the CNRS unit UREC, which has been integrated into the CNRS computing division DSI in 2011. Various resources are provided by the main partners involved in the project, coming from many french research institutes. The French PLUME server contains more than 1000 software reference cards, edited and peer-reviewed by more than 909 contributors, out of 2000 overall members from the research and education community. The site http://projet-plume.org/ is online since November 2007, and the first English pages have been published in April 2009. Currently there are 91 software products referenced in the PLUME-FEATHER area, 14 of them having been published since January 2012. The PLUME project is presented regularly in national conferences and events of the FLOSS community, and at CHEP 2012. Therefore we renew our proposal to expose a poster about the services available from the PLUME project on the international level to find not only users, but also contributors: editors and reviewers of frequently used software in our domain.
