I try not to get political here, so I’ll try to keep this as neutral as possible. Bruce Perens is running for a board seat at the Open Source Initiative and has asked for public support. My take on this should be pretty obvious from the fact I’ve signed the document.

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.
