Hi all

let me tell you the background first ------------------ ( RMS , please
correct me if some things are wrong here )

Richard M Stallman met Mr Manivannan who is the Mysore district Collector
and Distric magistrate , We got a very good response from Mr Manivannan . He
has shown interest ( serious ) in shifting all those systems that are
running proprietary softwares.

But he insisted very much on the list of all those people who are based in
mysore and can support the free softwares ( currently the support level is
may be hand holding , and may be even customizing the installation according
to the thier need and as well train the people who will be using them. Now
the strategy about how to take forward will have to be discussed and
according to the guidelines of free software foudation -india this will have
to be taken up.

Dr Nagarjuna could you please  give us some guidelines so that things will
be clear to all those who want to be part of this.

Any organization , individual who can support has to be present in front of
Mr Manivannan on the day we meet him   ( after fixing an appointment ) .
please pass on the message to your known ones  ( if they are not on this
list , get the details and update here ) and who ever replies will have a
chance to serve and hepl in taking forward the free software movement.

Regarding monetary benifits , i have no idea-- probbaly all those will be
told or discussed by Mr Manivannan when all the people meet there

Initiatlly i will be going to mysore for one or two days ( dates not yet
fixed )- any one from FSUG-bangalore wants to join reply here and then we
meet people in mysore and see that they will take on the things further ( it
is not that we are the one who are guiding -- it is that we are just in
touch with Mr Manivannan and then after introducing the people from mysore
---our job to some extent is done .. rest they can take care ..

Suggest the best ways in which this information has to be communicated to
all those people who are in mysore who are free software enthusiasts /
supporters / developers who can help in this regard
once it is sure that information is passed on to to all , those who have
shown interest will be meeting with Mr Manivannan and the things will later
be explained during the meting.

Mr manivannan is very clear that the supporters should be based in in and
around myosre ..

consider this a sn urgent requirement and lets meet as soon as possible

if people have some ideas about how this could be taken forward can please
