Startup Canopener has now been chosen as the name for
this group and initiative, so now some of the real work we all been itching to do can commence.

Most of the Steering Group and Web Services Group are going away for the long weekend, so I expect nothing much will happen until next week.

Thanks to all of you who took the time to vote.
Put your thinking caps on because its Canopening time, and eventually we are going to rip the lid off a whole mess of issues.

Startup The following outlines the groups proposed action steps as taken from the discussion lists.
Step 1. Use the agreed on simple internall mini mission statement once agreed on to form the basis of a full blown expanded mission and postitioning statement.

2. Begin to collect and compile an accurate, up to date list of like minded organisations and other potential "stakeholders" please use Web Links for that and send an email to the steering group with contact information.

3. Decide on a name for this new National identity

Startup TBA goes online. You'll probably want to go to the mailing lists, as that is the only thing that is currently active.

Would you ever contribute financially to a FLOSS project?
Yes, I have
