The increasing financial pressure upon French public organisations has to be considered as an opportunity of expanding the number of Open Source solutions. A recent national survey has actually concluded to the necessity, amongst other cost optimizing factors, to improve the level of mutualisation for IT developments within this specific sector.

The Open Source model holds natural advantages to reach this goal provided an efficient governing mechanism is systematically associated in order to promote the project and vitalize its community. To this end also, the public structures enjoy other legal facilities allowing them to take into partnership and share operating expenses.
