Apparently, Joseph was under the horribly mistaken impression that
mailing to license-discuss was an appropriate way to find this out.

Last September, it was discussed in response to Lawrence Rosen's
posting to the list - it was pretty clear that Joseph was asking for
help on getting his license approved.  No one from the OSI responded.
Again this past June.  No one responded, except yours truly, and I
recommended contacting webmaster at opensource.org (a position that we
later found out was vacant at the time).

Don't get your panties in a knot over what *we're* doing wrong.  Try
making it clear how to do it right.
certainly doesn't reflect this, and - gasp - it was updated 5 days
after this grand policy change.

Do your statements here suggest that anything that we actually want
people in the OSI to see should go to osi at opensource.org?

Since Joseph Reagle has apparently been too lazy to be worth your
attention, I'll forward your message to him.
