I hate to be the constant crank, but...
It's really hard to know what is going on. No one from the OSI talks
about it, except for the rare comment about how hard it is to be a
volunteer. And yet, no matter how hard it is for them, they still
manage to update the list with licenses that never saw the light of day
on the list.
At this point, I think the OSI needs to apologize to the wider
community for wasting everyone's time, say that the FSF adequately
represents the community, and dissolve. The FSF may not handle things
to everyone's satisfaction, but at least they handle things, and LISTEN
to the community while doing so.
To answer your question, I would assume that George Hunka
(webmaster at opensource.org) has the ability to make changes.
