Apache became an affiliate of OSI in 2011 with the expectation that the role of affiliate would be more clearly defined. Since then, there has been very little progress on defining the roles. At minimum, affiliates need to be involved, and ideally approve, public policy positions of OSI. There can be advantages to Apache from an affiliation with OSI. For example, OSI can make statements regarding public policy that Apache would endorse, but as a 501(c)(3) charity, cannot. Once the formal affiliate role is defined, Apache should appoint a VP, OSI to manage the relationship. In order to move the affiliate process along, we should make a request to OSI to formalize the affiliate program by the face-to-face meeting of OSI in November.
