As I discussed in this blog, OSM Don't Need No Stinkin Transparency, I had real concerns that one of the remaining two officers on the OSM board would be elected as President of OSM. Well, guess what? OSM managed to do one even better. They recently announced Paul Orwig was elected as President and Jacques Rentzke was elected as Vice-President. Apparently no Treasurer could be found among the existing board members so the COC has also announced:

The Board of OSM is pleased to report that the Community Oversight Committee (COC) has approved the extension of the board term of Ryan Ozimek to serve as interim Treasurer until one week after a new Treasurer has been elected, or April 30, 2012, whichever comes first.

Alice Grevet, Secretary, Open Source Matters, Inc.

Oh yeah, I almost forgot. Alice Grevet was elected as Secretary. That was a no brainer. She was doing all the work anyway.

OSM self-proclaims “transparent” communications, however investigation reveals that the claims are obvious smokescreens to deflect the actual lack of openness and honesty. Just read through the various blogs here if you haven't as of yet. The conclusion will be apparent rather quickly.

So what transparancy have I noted in the last month from OSM? 

And, no, it is not the vote by OSM (and poorly worded by Jacques Rentzke the supposed "vote" by the Leadership Team and the Community Leadership Team) to be affiliates of OSI. The last two are not entitled to vote, only OSM can vote itself as seeking such affiliation. Perhaps it would have been better if he indicated that the LT and CLT were in agreement with the vote.
