I'd like to see a "Hacking acquisition rules to use more
commercial free software" session, for example :)
I'm not sure what you mean... you mean government procurement rules?

both within and outside or GNOME: i.e. Governments with experience with
gnome, (France?-gendarmerie), introduction of GNOME community
Gendarmerie -> contact Chris Kenyon in Canonical. If he didn't do the
sale himself, he will know the key people in the project who did, and
perhaps sort you out with a suitably high-level introduction.
ok, have you got an email?
Assemblée National -> Idem - it's Ubuntu again, although I believe
Linagora got that contract...
Other governments with GNOME experience: Andalucia, Extremadura, Bhutan,
Itaipu power station in Brazil, and in general the province of Paranà,
also Sao Paolo, for smaller more local examples,
should give you some more (older) examples.
thanks, I'll work with that.
I'm not sure what you mean here. You mean investigating which prospects
there might be within government?

getting government GNOME users & prospects together,
yes, by having a small pre-conference with govt, we can leave out govt.
sessions during the conference, was my idea.
and another part of
the conference to enable conversations between govt & developers. Let's
limit the govt content in GUADEC to make sure that (a) it's the most
interesting possible and
Again, can you elaborate (sorry, could be me). You mean have few
sessions and create possibilities for intereaction gov-gnome?
(b) we allow those conversations to start.
