Sun Solaris, OpenSolaris This morning, at the OpenSolaris Governing Board (OGB) meeting, the following was proposed and unanimously resolved: "The OGB is keen to promote the uptake and open development of OpenSolaris and to work on behalf of the community with Oracle, as such the OGB needs Oracle to appoint a liaison by August 16, 2010, who has the the authority to talk about the future of OpenSolaris and its interaction with the OpenSolaris community otherwise the OGB will take action at the August 23 meeting to trigger the clause in the OGB charter that will return control of the community to Oracle."

OGB is just following a procedure as outlined in the constitution. OGB doesn't want to appoint a Oracle boss. It wants a representative from Oracle to answer the questions from the community instead of being silent. If Oracle fails to get a representative, OGB is ineffective and failed its mandate and hence dissolving itself.
