I am invited to give an input talk on the panel "re-use and redistribution"
about the technical requirements for digital open knowledge, basically about
the need of using real Free Software and Open Standards, the ways to got,
roads to avoid.

If anyone here on-list likes to "join" me or meet me, drop me a note off-list
or come to the symposium and join the discussion.

A quick word search for software and open document format shows some promising results, even the mention of software freedom (not gratis or open source). But maybe I am being naïve. I will have a deeper look over the weekend. If any of you is willing to have a look and feedback I would appreciate!

will do so next week in preparation of my talk. Willing to share and happy if
you do likewise.

can you point to these examples, please?

Best regards,

No one shall ever be forced to use non-free software
