| of candidates, the board voted the 
| following chairpersons to lead each OSI

| responsibility of a different director who 
| were responsible to take the comments into 
| account to produce the updated 2009 version.



Why We Still Need OSI

,----[ Quote ]
| For reasons best left to the reader to
| uncover, the Open Source Initiative (OSI) has
| often been at loggerheads with the Free
| Software Foundation (FSF) and particularly
| with its more excitable supporters.
| In the words of one trollish commentator:
| The (Free Software) world doesn't need a
| worthless ORG like the OSI.
| I beg to differ. I have been (and in plenty
| of ways still am) a critic of OSI, as well as
| a firm supporter and advocate of the FSF. I
| believe OSI should be a member organisation
| with a representative leadership.
| I believe it should strive for the inclusion
| to its community critics, ending the
| perceived divide. Most of all, I believe that
| its stewardship role for pragmatic software
| freedom should be broader than just licence
| approvals.
