As Dr Srinivasan wrote in his summary, access to source code of BOSS
project was discussed during the interaction.
As I understood,
1. The project derives from Debian and focusses on providing
localization in Indian languages, driver support for devices used by
Government departments and porting applications used by Government
2. There was not much clarity or focus on having community facing
initiatives in the initial years.
3. They have worked with various state and central government
departments to support FOSS installations (including Army, Navy,
Punjab government, Kerala government)
4. Now there is a stable team and efforts are on to share the work
with wider FOSS community.
The simple answer to your query is not available right now. Hope that
with more interaction by BOSS team members (who are in this mailing
list) and efforts towards sharing the work, these issues will be
