Mailing Lists

As a distributed organization, the Open Source Initiative uses mailing lists as virtual committees. These are where larger Open Source community works with the OSI's Board of Directors in fulfilling our mission to "educate and advocate" for Open Source.

The following mailing lists are open to anyone who cares about the world of Open Source, as long as you respect the charters and observe our Code of Conduct.
