|OSM By-laws Revised|
|Tuesday, 16 June 2009 17:26|
The Board of Directors of Open Source Matters announced today that it had approved revision of several sections of its by-laws.
Two major changes were made. First, a new article concerning public oversight was added.
This will institutionalize the practice OSM began last year of posting major documents (such as tax forms) on the OSM website.
The second major change is to Article III Item 10. Formerly board committees could only include members of the OSM board or the Community Oversight Committee. Now committees can include members of the public, including Joomla Project Working Group members, Joomla users, or outside experts on specific topics. This will allow OSM to take advantage of the skills, energy and enthusiasm of the Joomla community. Board committees include Board Membership, Audit, Budget, Capital and Operations.
Minor changes clarifying language elsewhere in Article III were also made.
