It occurs to me that the OSI will not be pleased with this sort of
thing. Despite past personal frictions between some early OSI members
and, ah, everyone, OSI is basically on the side of Free Software, not
against it. The current OSI volunteer team are rather more capable of
talking to humans, are working to get the team useful again, and
having them guarding the term "open source" would be good for free
software. Has anyone from FSF or FSFE been in touch with any of them?
