    In Germany, you can try to persuade the organizations that local council=20
    supervenes to use open software,

"Open software" means components that you can mix and match.
The term was used a lot 20 years ago by AT&T's Unix rivals,
but is not used much any more.

If what you mean is free software, why not call it "freie Software" in
Germany, and "software libre" in Spain?  "Open" is just a way of
not talking about freedom, and why would a Pirate Party want to do that?
