OPEN SOURCE WESTERN AUSTRALIA
Thank you for your email, dated 24 October 2006, regarding the above issue.
Presently, the Department of Industry and Resources (DoIR) is finalising negotiations with a provider to initiate the second phase of promotion of open source. It is planned that the provider will make available a meeting place for users, house the Open Source Server and establish facilities for developers.
It is also planned to hold discussions with interested parties early in 2007 to map out a strategy to cover 2007/08 through to 2009/10.
The letter also included contact details so I could be included in these discussions if I liked.
