What Open Government can learn from us Open Source folks

We (Australian and New Zealand Open Source Communities) are building a response to Australia’s call for input into their next Open Government National Action Plan.
In a nutshell, the response explains that Open Government needs to learn how to collaborate as effectively as Open Source communities, and what government needs to change to make this happen.
While this response is being delivered within Australia, it is globally applicable, and I’m very keen to receive reviews and suggestions before we submit (at the end of March).
Details about how to contribute are in the document at: What could Open Government learn from us Open Technology folks? - Google Docs
Warm regards,
