Hurrah for the Hansard

Hurrah, an official response from the Department of Parliamentary Services on our request to republish the Hansard.

“You don’t require permission to reproduce Hansard extracts and from your recent email […] additionally I can confirm that your citing of the Hansard source is appropriate.”

One small step for OpenAustralia, and one not insubstantial leap for democratic transparency in Australia.

To everyone involved getting us this far, thank you! We have your words, and now we are going after your pictures.
