There is an excellent opportunity to promote FOSS coming up at HACKAKL. It
is being run by Auckland Transport, AUT and Propellerhead, a local software
house. I am already signed up.


Next week there is a kick off meeting. It would be great if NZLUG members
could help; it is a great opportunity that we can't miss. Latest email from
HACKAKL follows:
