The Open Source Zambia Community Wiki
Victoria Falls from the air (Copyright (C) 2003 Richard Southern)
Welcome to the OpenSourceZambia community wiki. Please wander around, and try your hand at editing some of the pages (just click on the "Edit" link near the top) and go for it. Create a new page simply by making a connected word, like NewPage becomes NewPage, or look at the help section.
Some official stuff about the community and this wiki can be found on OpenSourceZambia, along with legal statements which are wholly uninteresting. OpenSourceZambia is a volunteer organisation administered by the CommitteeGroup.
OSZ Initiative Project - IICD Partnership. Check this space for more details.
