Quoting Russell McOrmond (russellmcormond at gmail.com):

If so, I'm unclear why that would be disposative:  

I frequently collaborate with people whose views clash with mine, to
achieve outcomes we both wish.  Pragmatically, _why_ they want said
outcomes just doesn't signify.

IMO, this OSI mailing list is a natural place for people supportive of 
OSI's real-world objectives.

tl;dr:  Common ground is a thing, even in 2019.

(Just my 50 dansk øre, that I forgot to spend before boarding time.)
