speaking as a non-member but avid contributor, the Gov2.0 Taskforce
(their blog above) had everything to do with freeing the data and
nothing to do with proprietary formats for anything - sometimes, the
cries of "free the data" were very loud indeed :)
We did get the FOI Act amendment on the Information Publishing Scheme
out of the Gov2.0 Taskforce and a lot of other good things besides -
so there is a cultural shift in government away from "we don't have to
tell you anything, we are the government". Like all cultural shifts,
this one may take a while.
Best regards, Andrew
