It is with sadness that we announce the resignations of Elin Waring and Dave Huelsmann from the Open Source Matters (OSM) board today.

Elin and Dave have worked successfully in many parts of the project. During their tenure on the OSM board over the last 3 years there were many accomplishments. As a Joomla project we released 1.5, registered the trademark and learned how to protect it, organized the accounts, established good operational practices, wrote a contributor license agreement, strengthened connections both to the third party developer community and to the open source world, solved major tax issues, changed the charter, hired a public relations firm, released 1.6 beta and moved to a more stable development environment by acknowledging the importance of development leadership and vision for the long term future of the project.

We wish them all the very best in their future endeavors and thank them for their years of dedicated service.
