OHA develops Android, obviously. Why do you think they have such complex system with it's own web UI? This is because the whole thing is developed by competitors who don't trust each other. There are bazillion NDAs and everything is done in very coopetive fashion. LG does not know what Samsung is doing and Google have no idea about HTC's extensions, but there are common core, too.
And you wonder why "pure open-source projects" with their "everything should happen in the open" mantra went nowhere in the mobile market?

I have no idea what the OHA does though. If you have any ***detailed*** information about how it works, does it have a board, who is the permanent staff, what *specific* privileges members get, etc. I would be happy to hear about it.
