Hi Bob,

I think this is a great idea. I have worked over the last years for a
company in Germany that initiated a regional Open Source foundation as a
platform for FOSS in the governmental and small business sector.

They organize an annual conference with use case presentations and so
on. The name is "OpenSaar" because the region is the "Saarland" in
Southwest Germany: http://www.opensaar.de/

Here are some interesting pointers concerning FOSS in the governmental
