Right on!  The OpenSource club is a framework.  As a member of the
opensource club, you have at your disposal a mailing list, web space,
meeting places, a weekly forum, office space, computers, and a host of
members brought together under a common interest.  I also am a resource
available to all members of the club.  I am here to help make your
opensource goal a reality.

People have suggested lots of great ideas: Software projects, setting up
servers in our office, gaming nights, serving OSS mirrors, Linux install
fests, and the list goes on.  I *challenge* you to do these things!
Pick one OpenSource goal for this quarter and make it a reality!  Start
a project and form your own satellite group, use our office space and
computers.  If you want keycard access to the office, all you have to do
is ask!

The first rule of opensource club is that there are no rules.  I get the
impression that some people may mistakenly think this mailing list is
only for announcements and that's not true.  I implore you to use this
list for discussion, questions, comments -- anything!  If the volume of
traffic on list becomes a problem, we can make a separate announcements
list as they have done in the past.

E Pluribus Unum,
- jim.
