This year's Open Source Days will take place at Copenhagen Business School (in Denmark) on March 10 and 11. Sven Esbjerg will be bringing a supply of Foundation flyers to give away--you can find him at the BSD booth in the "hallway track". Erwin Lansing from the Foundation will also be available to answer questions regarding funded projects and the Foundation's work.

Earlier this year, the Open Source Initiative (OSI) switched from a Board-only organization
focused largely on licensing to a member-led organization of affiliates. The OSI Board
invited the FreeBSD Foundation to its initial set of Affiliates and Justin Gibbs and Dru Lavigne from the FreeBSD Foundation have agreed to act as delegates.
Simon Phipps from the OSI announced the 12 initial affiliates at FOSDEM. In addition to the FreeBSD Foundation, the initial affiliates include: KDE, the Apache Software Foundation, the Mozilla Foundation, the Plone Foundation, Creative Commons, the Linux Foundation, Joomla, the Sahana Software Foundation, Drupal, the Eclipse Foundation, and the Wikiotics Foundation.
