OSM Lacks Financial Transparency

 It has been quite a while since I used my bully articles to try and influence OSM to be more transparent in their financial reportings. Especially by sharing their month to month reports (which I assume they are doing based on the Board minutes and if not they should be very ashamed of themselves). I have actually lost a lot of interest in the goings on at Joomla except, of course, using the Joomla software which I deeply appreciate. I also deeply appreciate the time and efforts of those volunteers who make up the Joomla organization. I guess what I have distanced myself from the most is the drama that surrounded the various goings on at the management/Board level.

The Good vs The Bad

It looks like the Open Source Matters Board may be making some progress in its new structure. It has been about six months since the new board was put into place and they have been meeting about twice a month and documenting (though without the detail I think should be given) and publishing those minutes on the Volunteer portal of Joomla.com which is an obscure place to find OSM minutes when OSM has their own website.

Notable is the OSM new board seems to be following in the footsteps of the previous board in that they are not publishing any financial information. The board does not seem to be taking their fiduciary responsibilities to heart as there isn't even any apparent discussion of how the expenses are coordinating with the budget  in the minutes of the board.
