The NZOSS would like to thank Catalyst IT for many years of website support and over two years of gratis website hosting (Catalyst IT continued managing and hosting this site after it acquired Egressive, who had hosted the site for many years prior). Catalyst provides excellent hosting services, including NZ's first OpenStack cloud service.
Opensource.com has an excellent retrospective article describing internationally signficant events affecting the FOSS (Free and Open Source Software) world last year. It mentioned a number of fascinating developments. The most profound, in my opinion, is the UK's mandate to use open standards for communication with and information dissemination by the government there. The ripples are only just starting to hit our shores.
