The organisation puts resources, either Join a money, a software developer, or documentation resources into an existing project project. The organisation sponsors an external Sponsor a agency to create a tool on its behalf, and project may assist that agency to locate other sponsors who could join the project. The organisation makes minor Adapt existing adaptations of existing tools to serve its own peculiar business needs. Product The organisation uses existing FOSS   Use existing tools, such as GNU/Linux, and does not contribute to their development.

  40. What progress have you seen with the implementation of FOSS Policy 2007? 1. Use FOSS. 2. Migrate to FOSS 3. Develop in FOSS 4. Use FOSS Licensing 5. Promote FOSS   
  41. What, in your opinion, can the South African government do to accelerate implementation of the Policy? Ecosystem   
  42. What procurement strategies, in your opinion, can government implement to enable the use of FOSS in government? How about: How can procurement strategies help create a FOSS ecosystem leading to innovation, enhanced economic growth, stronger democracy & better government?   
  43. Enterprise architecture question What kind of architecture do we need that applies FOSS practices & principles whenever possible? What processes can lead to the creation of this architecture?
