Fun thread to follow. throwing my thoughts out . . .
I think the bigger issue is the word “change” in the discussions. It’s not about changing anything. It’s about classifying items better than before. Nothing is going away label-wise, or really being changed either.
For example, you can say we’re putting on a OSGeo conference, and you can say, that is a FOSS4G project. I wouldn’t anticipate either of these labels going by the way side any time soon, but rather the desire being there for them to be used more specifically than they were before.
+1 to modify usage of terms.
