Bruce Perens Needs Your Help

A co-founder of the Open Source Initiative, Bruce Perens is now concerned that the body is becoming increasingly dominated by vendor representatives who do not necessarily have the interests of the open source community at heart.

You can read about why he feels this is necessary on his campaign page. I would suggest that perhaps a change in bylaws is also required, since it appears from Article V Section 5 that the Board of the OSI is, or has the potential to become, a self-perpetuating cadre with no outside accountability. I can't help feeling that's a little unhealthy.

Please visit Bruce's Web site and support him in his campaign to keep Open Source open!
