In the following article <> IT talks about the US government's effort to improve the code base for the open source software that "they" are using. Also it reminds me that the White House and other parts of the government are moving more and more of its work to open source software.

This is a good thing for marketing. If the US government is now embracing the open source community, maybe LibreOffice can use that in its marketing campaign. It would be a great thing to see if we can get the White House to endorse LibreOffice efforts, and maybe start using it withing their agencies.

So does anyone know a way to get the White House, or the proper people in the US government, to look at LibreOffice's efforts in the open source community and to review the software package? The article seems to be a possible boost to the several packages it named that the White House and other agencies use. What would such an article do for LibreOffice if the White House started to use LibreOffice?
