Subject: [GKD-DOTCOM] New Open Source Tool Supports Local e-Gov Access

GroupServer is a new open source tool that combines smart e-mail lists
and simple web forums. It's open source release was supported in part
by the UK Local E-democracy National Project of the Office of the Deputy
Prime Minister. E-Democracy.Org is a lead user of this New
Zealand-based tool. We are using it for local forums where e-mail
access is essential to reach "average citizens" not just those with
"always-on" connections.

A blog post on today's open source release of GroupServer:

Those with NGOs and governments interested in promoting additional core

E-Democracy.Org encourages those in the NGO and development community to
join us as we further improve GroupServer to meet the needs of those in
low bandwidth environments through both e-mail and web-friendly access.


Sincerely,
Steven Clift
Board Chair, E-Democracy.Org
