Publication: Guide to Open Source Software
Back in March, Glenn Archer asked for feedback on the draft Guide to Open Source Software. I was very pleased with the response.
Thank you to everybody who provided feedback.
We have made some changes to the guide as a result of feedback including:
- Clarifying the focus of the guide
- Where appropriate, providing linkages between AGIMO and other government documents as well as to other open source software products.
- Highlighting the Guide to ICT Sourcing and the Commonwealth Procurement Guidelines in the document as it contains Australian Government information on procurement processes.
Some of the feedback we received related to the Open Source Software Policy. The policy was released in January 2011 and we have reproduced it in the guide for ease of reading. AGIMO will continue to monitor the effectiveness of the policy and update it as appropriate.
The Guide to Open Source Software for Australian Government Agencies, Version 2.0 has now been revised and finalised following the public feedback.
