It's great when organizations which use open source software give back  
by contributing time to an existing project.  The Mellon Foundation  
has awards for organizations which do this.  I'm on the committee at  
the moment.

Can you think of or do you work for maybe a non-profit organization,  
including school or university, which has contributed back to an open  
source project?

If so, please nominate them -- could be your own university -- at http://matc.mellon.org/nominate

Deadline: April 14

Thanks in advance
Tim


The deadline for nominations for the 2008 Mellon Awards for Technology  
Collaboration (MATC Awards) is April 14, 2008. The MATC Awards consist  
of up to ten $50,000 or $100,000 prizes, which a receiving institution  
can use in a variety of ways to continue its technology leadership.  
The awards honor not-for-profit institutions that have demonstrated  
exemplary leadership in the development of open source software for  
one or more of the constituencies served by The Andrew W. Mellon  
Foundation: the arts and humanities in higher education; research  
libraries, museums; performing arts organizations; and conservation  
biology.
