Welcome to Open Source Matters!

The non-profit organization supporting the Joomla! project.


The Board of Open Source Matters (OSM) approved changes to its bylaws at a summit in Boston, Massachussetts, USA, on November 6, 2013.

This follows a Motion in August this year, qualifying the current Directors to become Members of Open Source Matters. These changes make OSM a Membership organization, in order to fulfill our obligations under New York Non Profit Corporation Law.

The updated bylaws are available here.

OSM thanks the Software Freedom Law Center, for their continued guidance and support in these deliberations.

Another round of changes to our bylaws is planned, that will reflect the details for a longer term structure for OSM as a membership organization.
