goes "open model"

Interestingly, someone copied the "open model" idea: serves the open source (and "open model") community by being an active contributor to open source and sponsoring open source projects that help build the Model Driven vision. provides open source developers a way to focus efforts on problems that need to be addressed and a way to build quality architectures and software that will really make a difference.

Well, sounds interesting (and open), but then: is operated as a division of Data Access Technologies, Inc. Conversion of to an independent not for profit organization has been discussed but no specific plans are pending.

it doesn't sound that open(-minded) anymore — especially considering the member structure.
