Excellent choice by Gnome here - Karen is extremely capable and understands the nuances of FOSS politics acutely, which is sadly a skill that's increasingly necessary. Having an experienced lawyer as ED will bring a new dimension to the dynamics of the project.

The Document Foundation continues its steady progress with news of a Gnome-style Advisory Board - which also presumably means the companies involved are making donations to strengthen TDF's already considerable cash base. The composition of the Board is very interesting, with Red Hat's CTO giving strong endorsement and with Google and SUSE represented too. A welcome development that lends gravitas to the already bold engineering effort.

Roberto's review of OSI's governance reforms correctly points out that individuals are very important to OSI. I hope the new governance will grealy expand the number of individuals able to contribute significantly and directly to OSI's mission to advance open source and unite its communities.

Strong statement here from TDF shows they have the support needed to take the former promise of OpenOffice forward. They have multiple, participating vendors operating as equals in their Engineering Steering Committee. They have a global community of localisers. They have a roadmap that's driving ongoing releases. They have the organisational backing to keep them going and a pot of money to spend. Fine work - I hope the remaining hold-outs can sink their differences and join in with TDF to make LibreOffice the revitalised success that the world needs it to be.

"But the observation that I found most telling was that the governance model has actually freed up blockages in the decision-making processes. This is despite initial concerns expressed by some project members that a governance model could be unnecessary bureaucracy."
