The Good Practice, selected within the framework of the Osepa project to represent the Czech Republic, is the implementation of Open-source document management system for the public administration based on the legal requirements. Until not long ago, there was no possibility of using data box access (state-guaranteed electronic communication of citizens, offices and companies) for Open-source document management system on Linux systems.

Its functionality is a full substitution for the official web interface of Data Boxes. Dslib includes a dslib library, which makes the design of Data Boxes in Python language possible.
