The topic for open source contribution in the UIDAI ambitious national project 
has come up before in PLUG.

There was a news today regarding UIDAI seeking volunteers on various fronts.

Some quick pointers on this topic:

Wonder what sort of contribution can be volunteered by open source enthusiasts 
in the technology bits and how can it all be organized. Can some concrete 
proposal be made and taken to the Govt. on behalf of various LUGs and such OSS 
related groups...

Mayuresh.
