The Kosmos project is an open co-operative of people, who are developing a free, open-source, and user-centric alternative to centralized group chat platforms, based on widely used protocols and standards.
We also offer a variety of other, hosted communication and collaboration services, mostly focused on users and contributors of free and open-source software.
Kosmos Chat (ex Codename 67P) is a group communication application, based exclusively on open protocols, standards, and data formats. All of its components can be either self-hosted or connected to hosted services. An alpha version is already in use by developers, and a public beta version is planned for 2022.
Kredits are a system for tracking project contributions, enabling the fair and transparent use of project funds, as well as improving project management and governance. We are currently experimenting with the system in pre-production and running trials for opensource grant payouts. Check out the public contribution dashboard if you're interested.
We run a variety of public services, for which we will soon accept donations for user accounts.

|Mastodon||Federated social network|
|Gitea||Code hosting and collaboration|
|Drone CI||Continuous integration platform, connected to Gitea|
