You are not the only one who has this impression. There has been frequent
critique of the handling of the trademark issue. I never heard anything
about the patent office abandoning the trademarking of Open Source.

I have tried to bring up having LUGs under SPIs umbrella here but I did
not get any response and it seems that the LUGs will try to do something
on their own now.

I sure will try to help as much as I can and I think SPI has a very
important role to play but it seems that we are stuck in
the mud right now and things fly by us.
