.@Framasoft's crowdfunding for has just passed 100%, so it will definitely get funding ๐ŸŽ‰ ๐Ÿ‘ ๐Ÿพ

There's still 12 days to go, so the appeal is going for a stretch goal to add even more features ๐Ÿ˜Ž

If it's licensed under creative commons you are allowed to distribute it. (For example the site Jamendo.com is full of creative commons music.)
