Sitting Idle? Write Open Source Code

Australian government program using spare labor capacity in building OSS projects. This is a unique initiative where all parties involved come out as winners.  Government gets programming done cheaply and people on the bench get good training.

This  is something which will be replicated in other countries.  And why not, it makes sense. Its a great way to initiate recruitment, utilize idle capacity, and write the kind of software which proprietary world is not interested in writing.
