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".

[1] https://twitter.com/OpenSourceOrg/status/1093546182465458177<https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__twitter.com_OpenSourceOrg_status_1093546182465458177&d=DwMFaQ&c=LFYZ-o9_HUMeMTSQicvjIg&r=CXUZ4nQ3OEMXP344JOLWVg&m=_QU2RqcEQlkT4LRwsuh8gcpA3fHrikk6vO3AAyrk-Ak&s=JwEqxHdXZMbwzguEdLUBg9gI1q_1Siokv1uIlD3vUYU&e=>

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.

I'd support this path +1 @ttx

+1 from me as well.
