reply properly.
I talk about the format you had attached 'docx', when we call for FOSS, I
atleast require a person to know the FOSS benefits
it's requirement in day-today life.

I don't have any problem to whom you contact... Even I don't know what you
have written inside your proposal because
I don't expect 'proprietary format to be used by any FOSS guys"

Thats great you are up for FOSS, but what is used if you can't spread FOSS
even you are nor using FOSS in your life. What is use of the sharing that
sharing is not provided the way it should be.

I think you should read this once :

Always open is, http://www.gnu.org/philosophy/philosophy.html
