Volevo segnalare questa newsletter mensile a cura dell'Open Source 
Observatory della commissione europea che trovo sempre molto densa ed 
interessante per tutta la casistica che riesce a censire.

The IDABC Open Source News Roundup – January 2005



Welcome to the Open Source News Roundup.

This monthly alert serves to keep you informed of additions and updates
to the content on the IDABC Open Source Observatory (OSO). The IDABC-OSO
is a clearinghouse of information related to free/libre/open source
software in the public sector, and is intended to promote and spread the
use of best practices in Europe. It aims to provide a comprehensive
overview of free and open source software policies and activities in the
public sector, especially in current and future EU Member States. This
service will keep you up-to-date with the latest open source
software-related news, activities, initiatives and insights from across
Europe and beyond.

Please feel free to forward this alert to any other interested persons,
and to send us your comments and suggestions. We also welcome your
contributions and we invite you to send in news items, announcements for
events and other stories related to open source and of interest to
public administrations to the email address mentioned before. Moreover,
if you belong to a public authority or a public sector organisation and
would be interested in being the subject of a case study for best
practices regarding open source software, please contact us. All email
should be sent to gposs a cec.eu.int <mailto:gposs a cec.eu.int>.


*The Open Source Software Inventory*

The IDABC-OSO recently launched the *OSO Software Inventory, *acatalogue
of replicable free / libre / open source software solutions for
eGovernment. The aim of the Inventory is to classify and briefly
describe these solutions, to provide contact information for the
software solution developers, to permit providers and potential users of
eGovernment solutions to specify and search for relevant applications,
and to thereby allow public administrations to estimate – if possible –
whether and how these solutions might be replicable.

We invite you to submit any free / libre / open source software projects
that your organisation or team has produced, for inclusion in the OSO
Software Inventory.Submission of a software project is easy – you only
need to fill in an online form
(http://europa.eu.int/ida/en/chapter/5649) with a few questions
regarding the nature of the software. Within a few days thereafter, you
will see your software description online on the Inventory website.
