I have serious issues with the fact that it is being chaired by Graham
Taylor of OpenForum Europe.  He was on the wrong side during last year's
debate in the European Parliament on software patents.Amongst other
things, he signed up to the idea of suing programmers whose software
infringed patents.  More info at

When dealing with Microsoft, it is crystal clear to everybody that they
oppose open source.  OpenForum claim to support open source but their
policies and positions are the very opposite of what open source needs
to survive and thrive.
