not about camp!

Between the Camp blogs something I think we should seriously have a look at:

opensourceforamerica.org/guidelines

The OpenSource for America team is working on a set of guidelines for the different government agencies to help them with their mandated Open Government Plan by April the 7th.

I know life is busy, but this is really worth a good look and input. Having good guidelines helps the US government set up a decent Open government, improving service for its citizens while benefiting the wider world. In other words, a very good thing! So if you have experience with open policies at either government or companies, spend a while on these guidelines and pour some of that knowledge in them.
