It would be great to see e-lists like these using the new open source
GroupServer tool.  Anyone interested?

It mixes a smart e-mail list with a simple web forum with a dash of
online community features.

Here is a post I am sharing around the Net today ...

I blogged the open source release of GroupServer today:


Read up on E-Democracy.Org's involvement with the tool and watch our 20
minute video tour if you want the inside scoop:


Visit the official download site in New Zealand run by GroupSense,


Those with NGOs and governments interested in promoting additional
core features that serve all of our needs, are invited join a special
online group:


Whether it is for many-to-many online deliberative discussions or
government-hosted e-consultations, GroupServer will grow with your
interest and our shared open source participation.

With the support of the UK government's Local E-democracy National
we funded a number of "democratic" GroupServer features as the well as
path to its first open source release.  If you combine this with our new

60 page guidebook on starting a local Issues Forums and our multimedia
"E-Democracy Experience" we've never been in a stronger position to help
active citizens ready to make an online difference in their local
communities.  Join us by building an Issues Forum in your community with
E-Democracy.Org.  Relevant documents for all:
