I've got a confirmation that FSM is registered to attend... I won't be able
to attend during the day, so if someone could step up if the opportunity is
presented and speak to the general benefits of open source solutions we
mention in the submission that would be great.
I'll include most of the email below as there is also a call for potential
vendors, perhaps people here will know open source vendors to encourage to
get in touch with them.
