The [ GNU Project] was launched in 1984 to develop a complete Unix-like operating system which is free software: the GNU system. GNU is a recursive acronym for "GNU's Not Unix"; it is pronounced [ g'noo].
The [ Free Software Foundation (FSF)] is the principal organizational sponsor of organisation that has sponsored the GNU Project.
Octave became GNU Octave in 1997 (beginning with [[Release History|version 2.0.6]]). This meant agreeing to consider Octave a part of the GNU Project and support the efforts of the FSF. A big part of this effort is to adhere to the [ GNU coding standards] and to benefit from GNU's infrastructure (e.g. [ code hosting] and [ bug tracking]). Additionally, Octave receives [ sponsorship] from the FSF's Working Together fund. However, Octave is not and has never been developed by the FSF.
