It may be very out of date, partially or totally incorrect. I may even no longer agree
with this, or might approach things differently if I wrote this post today. I rarely edit
posts after writing them, but if I have there'll be a note at the bottom about what
I changed and why. If something in this post is actively harmful or dangerous please get in
touch and I'll fix it.
Whether you agree or me or not, though, I’d please ask you to still take
a few moments and learn about the debate. You may want to take a look at
who’s already signed the document; some notable folks there, and some
notable absences. Make a conscious decision about whether you think this
is a good idea for the OSI; sign the document if you do.
