Hi everyone,

Since the affiliate agreement asks for some requirements that we need to 
clarify, it will take a bit of time to process.

In the mean time, the OSI is interested in adding signatures to their 
recent "Affirmation of the Open Source Definition":


According to [1], this is not limited to their affiliates, and they 
"will add more organizations as they reach out to be included".

I think this is a statement the OSF can get behind, and it does not come 
with further requirements. Time is of the essence to add ourselves to 
that, since they are still making a lot of communications around this. I 
propose that we reach out the OSI to add the OpenStack Foundation 
immediately to that list of signatures, in parallel to pursuing formal 
OSI affiliation.

Thoughts ?
