I have blogged quite a bit about OSM's failure not only to keep it's promises of transparency (essentially resolutions of transparency) but also its failure to follow its own bylaws and the not for profit laws of the state of New York under which OSM is incorporated. If we think of OSM's failures to keep resolutions as similar to the failures of those of us who make New Year's resolutions to lose weight maybe we can put OSM's continued failures in perspective. You know what I mean - the elliptical machines and free weights will be occupied from dusk to dawn in January with people who made the New Year's Resolution to "get in shape." But by February, the gym will be nearly empty again.

So, OSM, a new year is about to start. Should you make a resolution to keep your previous resolutions? Here's a New Year's resolution OSM can keep: Resolve not to make any more New Year's resolutions (goals) or any resolutions.

Now, wasn't that easy? And, doesn't it fit the actual performance of OSM this past two years?

I am still trying to figure out how the board of OSM went from wanting to install numerous "liaison's" or committee chairs between the board members and the various committees or teams that the newly installed president of OSM seemed to want back in April of 2010 to the current proposal of incorporating all Joomla! leadership groups within the overarching reach of the OSM structure. Back in April of 2010, Elin Waring attempted to explain that the Core team didn't want to be on committees. They wanted OSM to deal with the business aspects.

Elin explains history how Core team each was on a Committee. They now prefer that we deal with OSM business.
