On the Open Source Initiative (OSI) blog, Simon Phipps reports on an OSI board meeting
that appointed Karl Fogel, Jim Jagielski, and Mike Godwin to the board (replacing Russ Nelson and Danese Cooper who are leaving due to term limits, and adding an additional board seat). At the meeting, there was also movement toward more open governance for OSI. "This time the Board was able to reach agreement. OSI intends to move to a representative model, with open source communities of all kinds able to become members and participate in OSI's mission and governance directly. We decided the best approach was to offer a way for those communities to affiliate with OSI. The first step will be to change OSI's bylaws to permit entities other than the Board to participate in governance.
