Remind me again, please: Why are _we_, the subscribers of OSI
license-discuss, supposed to care?

OSI's standards are detailed on its Web pages. Is there a particular
one that you believe it is failing? If so, please cite a specific
instance of this deriliction of duty.
If, by contrast, you are simply voicing your wish that OSI have a
different mission from the one it's had to date (as I suspect is the
case), then you are wasting your time and ours, and should instead find
or create a group more to your liking.
This is not your blog, Mr. Travers.
