GPLv3 just got the nod from the OSI. Why this is important.
Open source runs the risk of being so insular in its ideology that it becomes irrelevant. The OSI can help by expanding its membership.
OSI seems to think it has a license proliferation problem again. It doesn't, and never has.
The OSI just expanded its board with two new members.
Bruce Perens wants to be on the OSI board. What has he done to deserve this?
One of open source's biggest failings has been to extend its relevance into the Software as a Service world. The OSI has finally corrected this with the approval of the Affero GPL.
Microsoft has finally engaged with open source in the correct way and was rewarded accordingly.
Groklaw wants the OSI to bash Microsoft and keep it out of the community. Fine. But it's directly inimical to why the OSI was set up in the first place.
The community wants to tar and feather Microsoft, showing the ugliest side of the community.
The Open Source Initiative judges open source, but isn't democratically elected. Does this matter?
