Welcome to the Software Heritage deposit


The long term goal of the Software Heritage initiative is to collect all publicly available software in source code form together with its development history, replicate it massively to ensure its preservation, and share it with everyone who needs it.

What's the deposit?

This is Software Heritage's SWORD 2.0 Server implementation. S.W.O.R.D (Simple Web-Service Offering Repository Deposit) is an interoperability standard for digital file deposit. This implementation allows a client (a repository, e.g. hal) to deposit software source archives and its associated metadata to the (SWH archive).
