In this article at crn.com.au Patrick Callioni from the Department of Finance and Administration says that Government is open to Open Source, but that Open Source Companies need to become more reliable. "Government wants to do business, but a lot of open source companies are here today and gone tomorrow," he said. "They need to set up co-op arrangements with similar companies to back each other up. We need to see things that work and can offer a long-term proposition."
