Probably a lot of you already know this, but I just found out by seeing
Jez Humble joining them [1]:

Apparently the US government is funding a fully FLOSS-based
"consultancy" to "build the 21st century US government":

They have a nice Open Source policy and a lot of Github projects:

I'm not sure, but I haven't seen anything comparable (well funded
government initiative with a lot of FLOSS projects) at least in Germany.

Maybe you can correct me and share any comparable European initiatives
with such "manpower" and number of FLOSS projects..
