Some days ago I candidated me as individual member representative in OW2. OW2 born from the merge between ObjectWeb and Orientware. For most people ObjectWeb is the European Apache, for other is the French Apache! :-)
"The OW2 Consortium was initiated on January 1, 2007 through the merger of ObjectWeb and Orientware, two leading open source middleware communities of renown industry players, innovative start-ups, prominent academic organizations and individuals from across the world." - Cut&Paste words from official http://www.ow2.org site.
Yesterday the election was finished and François LETELLIER collected higher votes, 49.1%, against my second place with 34.0% votes.
My congratulations to François!
I hope to see OW2 to gain the developers interest as much as Apache.
