In my experience many of these organizations have just begun to get their
heads around the fact that it makes sense to *use* open source software. The
notion that they can also improve their life by sponsoring the creation of
open source software is just too much of a mental leap. They do many other
things that create a community benefit rather than pure competitive
advantage, for example taking part in industry standards bodies, but
investing in software that's immediately available to their competitors is
something that gets a reaction of complete incredulity. There are a number
of Saxon users at present trying to persuade their bosses to invest in
enhancements that their organization needs, so I know!
