Thank you Dr. Nagarjuna. The community will be happy if you incorporate
the above statement.
I have another concern with regard to first first question. Many of us
are inspired by the first national conference on free software at
Hyderabad. I think the statement needs further editing.
"It is successful platform for sharing knowledge as well as experiences
among free software community. The conference paved the way for the free
software community to expand in India."
In any event success is to be projected reflecting the relality. Please
focuss this direction also.
Dr. L. Pratap Reddy,
Prof. in ECE Department,
JNTU College of Engineering,
