Hi all.

January's IFSO meeting is tomorrow evening. You'll find us in the Long
Stone at 20h00:

Here's the proposed agenda:


Discuss response to our 'free software as part of education computer
budget' letter, and decide on next steps.

Put the stop-software-patents banner on the IFSO site?

Throwing IFSO's mighty weight behind the task of gathering 1,000,000
signatures for a legislative-proposal petition.

(Possible intersection SWpat/education as in Ciaran's email of

Recent enquiry concerning legality of charging for Free Software.

Do we need to start thinking about rustling up an AGM?

Consider whether we can do something with the information that Brian dug
out ages ago about libraries offering computer skills courses, and can
we at least make them aware of the possibility of using free software to
do so.

Ben visited the Young Scientists exhibition and saw quite a lot of Free
Software in use.  Could we dig into this more and/or include in further
letter re the education funding?

The German government recently advised its citizens not to use Internet
Explorer.  Should be write to somebody suitable in the Irish government
and/or the press, advising the same?
