This is the mission statement developed in Germany in 2008 by OSM and the core team and still published on the OSM website:

Our mission is to provide a flexible platform for digital publishing and collaboration.

Yet, this is the mission statement described by Paul Orwig in his November 9th blog about OSM's top 2012 goal ideas:

OSM's mission is to provide open, responsible, and effective leadership in support of the Joomla! project’s legal, trademark, events, financial, and external communications needs.

That's quite a switch in mission statements! And apparantly without input from Joomla Leadership (it wasn't mentioned in the summaries of the San Jose summit) and there wasn't any input solicited from the Joomla! community. Looks like OSM is heading down its own singular pathway yet once again. Might help the current OSM board members to review the mission, vision, and value statements that they are responsible for alongside the rest of the Joomla! leadership.

It takes so long to get OSM to release the minutes of their board meetings and then when they finally do, they make freshman mistakes. Like this first item on the August 29, 2011 minutes.

I. Approval of previous meeting's minutes Dianne brings the motion to approve the minutes from the June 21st board meeting. Jacques seconds. The motion passes by unanimous consent.

Of course, that is the EXACT same approval - even down to the minutes from June 21st - that appeared in the July 18, 2011 board minutes! You would think in three months they might have proofed it just a tad bit better.

Attendance by Altansukh Tumenjargal has not improved any. Counting the August meeting as one meeting even though it continued on another day which he also missed gives him an attendance record now of 12.5% (1 out of the last 8 board meetings). And Akarawuth Tamrareang has missed 4 of the eight board meetings. That is a 50% attendance record.
