I’m thinking of making some changes to some free computer software.
It is technically “volunteering” but it doesn’t have a lot of the characteristics of traditional volunteering.
I have seen it called “contributing” to open source software instead of volnteering.
Actually that term seems to be more common.
The first problem is trying to explain what free software is to the insurance company.
There is no deadline.
There is no schedule.
It can be done at home whenever.
It can be done in small pieces.
There is no obligation to do anything.
It is free.
I want to get permission from the insurance company but I suspect they’ll say no out of hand (because they don’t know what it is).
Should I just do it and then defend it later if it becomes a problem?
