Dear Colleagues,

I want to welcome everyone who has recently joined this list. You've arrived
just in time as there has been a lot happening at OSS Watch over the past
month or so and this effort will very shortly begin to reveal itself on the
website. So, here is a brief update of what is newly available.

OSS Watch held it's first advisory committee meeting on 16 September 2003.
At that meeting, Paul Browning of the University of Bristol was elected
Chair of the advisory committee. You can find the minutes of that meeting,
the membership of the committee, and its terms of reference on the website
on our revised "About OSS Watch" page, http://www.oss-watch.ac.uk/about/,
where you can also now learn more about the actual staff involved in OSS
Watch.

On 3 October 2003 we initiated the "OSS Watch Scoping Study". This is a
formal study to investigate the current state of participation in free and
open source software both in terms of projects developing such software and
institutional deployment of such software at UK further and higher education
institutions. To accomplish this, we sent, through appropriate
intermediaries, email invitations to IT Directors and Managers at each
further and higher education institution in the UK to participate. If you
fall into that category and have not received a message from OSS Watch
inviting you to participate, then please take this as your invitation. Your
participation in this formal study will directly impact the development of
this service for UK further and higher education and would be greatly
appreciated.

* Scoping study: http://survey.oss-watch.ac.uk/ The survey must be
completed using this form and there is a link there to the full set of
questions for viewing in advance of filling in the survey.

It should take no more than 20 minutes to complete the survey. Data from the
study will be anonymized in a report, which will be made public. You may
also choose to have an electronic copy of that report sent to you.

If you have any questions concerning this scoping study do please contact
me.
Thanks again for participating in OSS Watch.

Best wishes,

Randy Metcalfe
