The purpose of the SRFI web site is to facilitate creating and disseminating information about proposed additions to the Scheme programming language. This work is done in public through documents and email messages published on this and other web sites. All of the work is done by volunteers. In support of this work, we use these third-party tools:
Linode, for the Linux server that runs the main web site, srfi.schemers.org.
The SRFI web site does not set cookies.
As is standard for web sites, we maintain server logs that contain IP addresses and other identifying information. We use this for debugging, for security, and for computing aggregate statistics. Our intent is that only the editors are allowed access to this information. We rotate the logs approximately every two weeks, so only our backups contain older log information. However, we may indefinitely preserve log entries and other information that record apparent attacks on the site.
GitHub for hosting code and documents that are part of the proposals.
Here is GitHub's
privacy statement. Note that users who would prefer
not to use GitHub can download all the code and documents
.tgz), directly from the SRFI web site.
Google Fonts for hosting the open-source Noto Sans font, which includes many Unicode characters that other fonts don't.
Simplelists for delivering email messages and for displaying those messages in public archives.
Note that most email messages sent to SRFI email addresses are displayed publicly in our archives, e.g. srfi-discuss. These archives are necessary because the point of SRFI is public, transparent discussion of proposals.
Simplelists obfuscates email addresses in the public archives so that they can't be harvested by spammers. However, since the point of the site is pubic discussion, we make no attempt to conceal the identities of participants.
If you have any concerns about SRFI, please contact the SRFI editors. (Mail to the editors is archived, but typically not displayed publicly.)
