City of Munich and German Federal Foreign Office start collaboration
| According to this German article, the City of Munich and the German Federal
| Foreign Office have started to collaborate on the implementation of their
| open source and open standards strategies. I would not be surprised if other
| organizations decided to join the "alliance" as well. Anyway, very cool to
| see government organizations collaborate regarding the usage of open source
| and open standards.
Munich Linux scales desktop management
,----[ Quote ]
| The City of Munich has developed impressive systems
| for rolling out and maintaining Linux desktops for
| large numbers of users, according to a British
| developer who had a close-up view of the system.
| "Most of the work has been in configuration and
| systems... rather than custom packages on the clients
| themselves," McIntyre said in a blog post last week.
| "The vast majority of the packages installed come
| straight from the standard Debian archive."
| LiMux developers have automated installation via
| Debian's FAI (fully automatic installation) system,
| according to McIntyre, with configuration information
| stored in LDAP and the database administration
| program GOsa as a front-end. "They've integrated
| these to enable some very clever management features
| so that all aspects of the city-wide system can be
| maintained from one central point," McIntyre said.
