Speaking as someone who was on the US board, and was part of the
previous discussions with the Chapters working group, I think at the
time, both the US Chapter and the OSMF were in difficult places, both
wanted to work together, but not sure what the best way was to
represent their constituents.
The goals of the two organizations was very different, and so it
seemed easier to table the discussion and simply move on without a
formal agreement until a later time.
It would be wonderful for the that later time to be now, and I think
we have the right people in both organizations to make it happen.
