Canadian Govt Requests Feedback on Open Source

so.dan (939602) writes "The Government of Canada has apparently put out a "Request For Information" on the development of "common guidelines" for the use of Open Source Software within the Govt of Canada.

From the article (via Digg): "The objective of the RFI is to provide an opportunity for those interested to provide information they feel Canada should be aware of when developing internal guidelines related to the planning, usage and disposal of No Charge Licensed Software" within the Government of Canada.

The government has put out a list of specific questions, the answers to which will be used to come up with the guidelines. It would be great if the knowledgeable folks at Slashdot could provide some feedback."
