For example, they have launched several project such as 'Enhancement of OpenOffice.org for Japanese users', 'Study of object exchange architecture in cross-desktop environment' and 'OSS iPedia - OSS general information service includes case study, performance evaluation, and Q&A service.'
The first one, Openoffice.org enhancement, is the continous project with feasibility test by Ninomiya local-govt. It focuses Japanese users by researching requirement/comments from users especially from local-govt. After then the project make technical description of recommended features and will propose the features to OpenOffice.org developers.
Most interesting one is 'the kernel message database'. They try to create the web database service that user can search the messages linux kernel warned and can see the place of the problem and recommended actions.
It includes all messages of linux kernel source and public service.
At start time, it is only in Japanese but they have the plan to extend internationalize and to help developers / users in the world.
