Matthew Garrett reports

The Linux Foundation is an industry organisation dedicated to promoting, protecting and standardising Linux and open source software. The majority of its board is chosen by the member companies: 10 by platinum members (platinum membership costs $500,000 a year), 3 by gold members (gold membership costs $100,000 a year), and 1 by silver members (silver membership costs between $5,000 and $20,000 a year, depending on company size).

Up until recently, individual members ($99 a year) could also elect two board members, allowing for community perspectives to be represented at the board level. As of [January 18], this is no longer true.

The by-laws were amended to drop the clause that permitted individual members to elect any directors. Section 3.3(a) now says that no affiliate members may be involved in the election of directors, and section 5.3(d) still permits at-large directors but does not require them[2]. The old version of the bylaws are here--the only non-whitespace differences are in sections 3.3(a) and 5.3(d).

These changes all happened shortly after Karen Sandler announced that she planned to stand for the Linux Foundation board during a presentation last September [YouTube]. A short time later, the "Individual membership" program was quietly renamed to the "Individual supporter" program and the promised benefit of being allowed to stand for and participate in board elections was dropped (compare the old page to the new one). Karen is the executive director of the Software Freedom Conservancy, an organisation involved in the vitally important work of GPL enforcement.

Roy Schestowitz at TechRights entitled his coverage
The Linux Foundation Has Become Like a Corporate Think Tank; Microsoft Influence Included

[Our extensive coverage of malfeasance at the European Patent Office] has prevented us from covering as much about the Linux Foundation as we used to, including payments from Microsoft, services to Microsoft, and abandonment of GPL enforcement efforts because GPL enforcers went after a Microsoft executives-run VMware.

Several of the places that covered this remarked about the extremely quiet nature of the process.

    I read this elsewhere first , and got the impression there was some revolution in place, or at least a coup.

    Of course, this is what the politically minded do, change the paperwork when noone is looking, and then enforce a new regime.

    I have seen it done at least once in my professional career by an HR dept.

    I imagine this is along the same lines...

        It ain't got squat to do with MSFT, who are too busy shooting themselves in the foot with Windows "oh hai, I be spyware lulz" 10 to care.

        You mark my words and mark them well, its gonna come out that its being done by Red Hat to cut down on the dissent when Linux is made a second class citizen wrt SystemD. Anybody who has bothered following the posts by Larry Potter knows he has made it VERY clear that his ultimate goal is to make SystemD the dominant OS like a souped up hypervisior with Linux being nothing but a VM running on top. This fits in with RH's "Cloud Everywhere" computing initiative but I'm thinking the Linux faithful? Are really not gonna like being kicked to the curb for Larry Potter and the ever expanding SystemD.

        I'm telling you its all gonna come to a head in the next year to year and a half and it'll be VERY nasty, I'm betting RH and the devs they have placed in high places (look how many of the key positions at Debian and Ubuntu are former RH employees) are gonna try to just straight up take control of the whole shebang and by getting as many dissenting voices out of the way as possible they are getting things ready for the move. Its no different than what they did when they first pushed SystemD, you had devs that up until that point would bury you with stats and technobabble for why this or that change would be best suddenly throwing ad hominems and insults like "luddite" while damned near taking every single talking point from the Windows Metro guys like "embrace the innovation" and "its the way of the future".

        Something stinks in Denmark guys, and me thinks it be Red Hat and Larry Potter.

      It reminds me of the company "Extron Electronics" that I had an interview scheduled with. I read the reviews on Glassdoor.com and was so horrified I called up the recruiter and canceled. There were so many stories about how the HR department ran the place, and even had cameras watching the bathrooms so they could time how long employees spent in there.

                How exactly did HR "run" the company at your workplaces?

                Generally the object was to gain political power within the organisations; the worst situation was where all sections were having their budgets drastically cut except HR which had theirs increased (even though staff numbers were decreasing). I don't know the actual mechanics of how they did it, but the proportion of upper management who came from HR was very high.

                In each case, the point was to increase the size and power of the HR empire. The overall running of the organisation was only affected as necessary to achieve that goal. HR weren't the only empire builders, but they were the most efficient.

      Do remember, however, that "The Linux Foundation" is the name that the creators of the foundation chose for the organization, and does not now and did not ever speak for the community. It only pretends to. Sometimes its goals align with those of the community, but frequently they don't. I think this was one of the groups behind trying to make RPM the official way to update software packages, and refusing to accept debs. So they published their official guidelines, and some people paid attention, but many didn't.

      I've been skeptical of them since I first heard about them. This is just the last step making it plain were their allegiences lie, but it was already pretty clear. They aren't necessarily "bad guys", but when they use that name they're sailing under a false flag.

    It seems likely that this is simple self-defense. When Karen Sandler became head of the GNOME foundation, she nearly bankrupted the organization with her pet project, the Outreach Program for Women. This is just like the people trying to impose political "codes of conduct" on OSS projects, and fighting against a politically neutral code of merit [code-of-merit.org]. Their priorities are not with the project; they want to use the project to further their personal, political goals. Not the sort of person you want on your board.

        That's a big pile of crap. I graduated college before the Millenial "brogrammers" took over the industry with their ugly, flat, anti-skeumorphic UIs, and before the term "coding" replaced "programming", and there were almost no women in CS and engineering back then either. It wasn't because of sexism, it was because women weren't interested. Women only had programming jobs back in the really old days when women weren't allowed to do "man's work", and programming was somehow considered on par with secretarial work. After the sexual revolution, women were allowed into lots of "men's" jobs like lawyering, doctors, etc. (instead of just legal assistants and nurses and aides), so smart women went into those professions, and mostly ignored engineering and CS, which were seem as the domain of geeks.

          Programming never ever was "considered on par with secretarial work" in the past. Please provide any reference to prove your allegation.

      Their priorities are not with the project; they want to use the project to further their personal, political goals.

          Not all of us are as well informed as you obviously are. Please provide some details and documentation about "what Sandler has done earlier in her life."

          Pretty please!

      They "sponsor" Linus Torvald's paycheck, and could well give him unwanted advice. I look forward to his public reaction in that event.

      They simply decide what is Linux and what is not. And they dictate the rules. They might even decide to change the license.

        The name is something they grabbed up.
        It is purposely deceptive (and, accordingly, you got snookered).

        The GPL is managed by GNU.org. [google.com]

        As noted in TFS, the Software Freedom Conservancy has been doing license enforcement (filing lawsuits against abusers).

        The Linux kernel is Torvalds' baby and he controls under which license it is released.
        He communicates to the public via the Linux Kernel Mailing List.

        Distros and desktop environments and FOSS apps each has its own site/ecosystem.
        What they do with licensing is subordinate to upstream decisions.

        The Linux Foundation is a johnny-come-lately self-appointed advocacy group, founded in 2007.
        In the past, they have spread the gospel of the advantages of Linux and associated projects.
        They also give seed money to FOSS projects that they deem worthy.
        They have been mentioned here before, [soylentnews.org] notably in the context of the for-profit edX education program.

        The kinds of membership fees mentioned in TFS is a good indicator of what the organization is about. (Money.)
        This latest move further demonstrates that the Linux Foundation is increasingly an incestuous group of Capitalists whose main concern is making a buck--not Software Freedom.
