The Open Preservation Foundation (OPF) has become an affiliate member of the Open Source Initiative® (OSI). The OSI is the global non-profit formed to educate about and advocate for the benefits of open source software, development, and communities.
OSI affiliate members participate directly in the direction and development of the OSI through the Board of Directors elections as well as incubator projects and working groups that support software freedom. OSI membership provides a forum where some of the world’s most successful open source software leaders, projects, businesses, and communities engage through member-driven initiatives to promote and protect open source software, while also extending and improving their open source efforts through co-creation, collaboration, and community.
The OSI Affiliate Member Program, available at no-cost, allows non-profit and not-for-profit organisations – unequivocally independent groups with a clear commitment to open source – to join and support the OSI’s mission to educate about and advocate for the benefits of open source and to build bridges among different constituencies in the open source community.
