The first domino has fallen.

Last night the ACT Legislative Assembly passed the Democrats' Open
Source Bill.

Congratulations to Roslyn Dundas and her team.

As soon as I have a copy of the Bill in its final form online somewhere,
I will distribute a link.

This is an important first step for us.

The Australian Capital Territory is a special case, being the seat of
government, with a highly educated population, but this means that we
have another good test case to be used to demonstrate the benefits of
open source around the country.
