Earlier this evening, many members of the community participated in chat with a representative (for lack of a better word that comes to mind) from the Open Source Initiative.
Having been initially contacted during the Area 51 phase, the OSI is still interested in this site. We've discussed and are likely to make features in order to keep communication. They are also open to having a site as proposed here.
Having done this, should we reach out to other organizations? I think the organizations in question would be:
- The Free Software Foundation
- Creative Commons
- The Open Knowledge Foundation
- FSF: No response
- CC: No response
- OKF: No response
