	Right. In france, people who insist on speaking about Open
Source use the english word. I've only rarely heard people using a
french translation of Open Source (sources ouvertes).

	We often face people talking about Open Source but using the
word Logiciel Libre. This is confusing and we try to fix their
mistake. The usual answer is : this is my idea of what Logiciel Libre
is and who are you to claim that it is otherwise ?
