[board-discuss] cooperation with Do-FOSS?
we have received the following request, which I'd like to put to public
Dear Document Foundation,
we are Do-FOSS, the initiative for the use of Free and Open Source
Software (FOSS) by the City of Dortmund . Unfortunately, there is no
English version of our webpage but we do have an English landing page
. In case you are more deeply interessed in our activities you could
use the service of your choice to get an automatic translation (Google
does a good job from our point of view).
Our goal at Do-FOSS is pretty much explained by our name so I am going
to leave it to that at this point As a means to reach our goal we take
civil action and bring organisations together who can provide knowledge
and partnership for the migration of our city administration from
proprietary to free software.
So far Do-FOSS as an intiaitve integrated into various already existing
organisations. These are
- Free Software Foundation Europe 
- ver.di (a nationwide acting German union to which we have mostly local
contact but also federal) 
- digitalcourage (a nationwide German initiative for citizen privacy) 
- OSBA (Open Source Business Alliance) 
These organisation are listed altogether here.
We would be thrilled if we could expand our effort of providing a
knowledge and partnership to the city council of Dortmund by adding the
Document Foundation. For example the experience the city of Munich has
made through the LiMux-Project could contribute to our aim very valuably.
I'll be happy to get in touch with you in case I left something unexplored.
If you should decide to go along with our request we would need from
you: A logo of the Document Foundation we may use and a description of
the Document Foundation in about the short length of the other
introductions of the organisations listed so far. An emphasis on Open
Standards would be nice of course.
