The European Commission's Open Source Observatory (OSO)
http://europa.eu.int/idabc/en/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. The OSO is part of the EC's IDA (Interchange of Data between
Administrations) programme, and ultimately aims to provide a
comprehensive overview of free/libre/open source software policies and
activities in the public sector, especially in current and future EU
Member States.

The OSO recently launched the OSO Software Inventory, a catalogue 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/idabc/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

We would also appreciate it if you could pass this email on to any
software projects you might know of, or post this message to any free
or open source software mailing lists.

If you have any questions regarding the OSO or the OSO Software
Inventory, please feel free to send an email to: gposs@cec.eu.int

Best regards,

The IDA-Open Source Observatory Team
