I just encounted this report:

"Forfás is the national policy and advisory board for
enterprise, trade, science, technology and innovation."

"The report provides guidelines for companies adopting
 open source models for software development. It provides an
 overview of the open source commercialisation models most
 suited to the Irish context and aspects of different licensing
 models that firms need to be aware of. It summaries the key
 questions that Irish Independent Software Vendors (ISVs) and
 Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) need to ask, and outlines
 the considerations and actions that need to be taken in advance
of making a decision to engage in open source development."

BTW, I discovered this via Paul O'Malley posted to
ilug a few weeks ago.

Good luck,
