Re: [ba-ohs-talk] open source question

Another important point in open source and open standard 
product development and marketing is the support  tools and 
processes available to the users. All this support must 
of course also be open and standards-based and easily 
replicated and extended by interested users.     (01)

So it is the combination of the technical/human platform for 
conducting the collaboration and of the support/facilitation 
services provided by platform experts to the collaborators 
that make it possible to compose an organized answer to 
some complex question.     (02)

... and get supported by its implementors ...    (04)
