OSI Director Receives Open Source Award

Congratulations to OSI Director Martin Michlmayr, who was one of the recipients of an O'Reilly Open Source Award at OSCON in Portland, OR last week. He was recognised for his long-standing contributions to the Debian project, where he has served two years in the demanding role of Debian Project Lead and remains an active contributor after ten years. Richly deserved recognition for a quiet and effective contributor who just gets stuff done - bravo, Martin!

OSI Welcomes Member-Elected Director

OSI Board Meeting Report

The new OSI Board met in Washington DC last week. We held an effective face-to-face meeting where we discussed the progress of our plans to transform OSI into a member-based organisation. We held officer elections, once again electing Martin Michlmayr as Secretary, filling the vacancy for CFO left by Alolita Sharma by electing Karl Fogel and replacing him as Assistant Treasurer by electing Mike Milinkovich. I was re-elected as President and thank the Board for that vote of confidence in this time of change.

OSI Board Changes 2013

One of the ways we're turning OSI into a member organisation is to gradually replace the Board with member-selected directors. This process started last year when OSI's Affiliate members -- non-profit organizations themselves -- selected candidates for the Board.
