I hereby propose this resolution for the September meeting.

Resolution 2009-09-08.jrk.2: OSUNIX as associated project


 1. OSUNIX is a substantial and useful open source project,

 2. OSUNIX would like SPI's support and assistance, including taking
donations, and

 3. OSUNIX engaged the Software Freedom Law Center separately from their
representation of SPI and obtained from them an opinion letter which
satisfactorily addresses SPI's legal concerns with regard to OSUNIX,


 4. OSUNIX is formally invited to become an SPI
Associated Project, according to the SPI Framework for Associated
Projects, SPI Resolution 1998-11-16.iwj.1-amended-2004-08-10.iwj.1, a
copy of which can be found at

 5. Currently, Christopher Bergström is recognised by SPI as the current
authoritative decision maker and SPI liaison for OSUNIX. The SPI Board
expresses its desire for Christopher Bergström to clarify the governance
structure of OSUNIX to the Board, which structure the Board will
recognize as it would any other instruction from an associated project.

 6. This invitation will lapse, if not accepted, 60 days after it is
approved by the SPI Board.
