Description: 
This report identifies possible open source pathways for sustainable preservation and, more importantly, identifies the gaps in available technology and recommends a way for UNESCO to encourage digital communities to address that shortcoming. The report may be of some value to those intending to build a digital repository, but its intended audience are those who are responsible for, or are able to influence the direction of open source development so that a packagable and affordable sustainable digital archival storage system can be developed, supported and made available.
