Hi Russel,
Thank you for the email. I am very pleased to hear from the discussion here
to get PNG Open Source Society started. We need advice / direction from you
people who are already running Open Source groups to help us get started
and into the right direction.

Training / Assistance to setup PNG Open Source Community.
This I meant I need some guidance / assistance in the following areas;

   - some kind of training to manage the Open Source Community. Since it is
   new in the country, how can I learn from LA to manage PNG Open Source
   Society? Best practices, how it is established and managed.
   - assist with the constitution of the society
   - Assist with Open Source resources, new developments, etc.

Resources such as web space, hosting, mailing lists
Disregard the hardware, there was a selection to resources on the
application that I chose. However, in this selection I requested for free
space to design and host PNG Open Source Society web site and email list.

We have group on Face Book called PNG Open Source Community. The group
started in October 2013, and the members are starting to increase. Please
feel free to join the group and give us your views / thoughts on some
things discussed in the group to get PNG Open Source Society get going.

Thank you very much indeed
