Its without doubt that the current initiative is not government-led but a coalition of advocacy work across all sectors including government.

Dr Andile Ngcaba (Chair-designate Dimansion Data) has been advocating fiercely for FOSS in the 4IR and perhaps at some stage we need people of his stature to support our initiative.
