The SAC has an outstanding action item from the EXCOM to provide a position
statement on open source software. The SAC has agreed upon the following
statement as a logical addendum to the SISO Vision statement.

SISO understands and appreciates the contribution Open Source Software has
made to the efforts of many other standards organizations. As such, SISO
actively encourages the involvement of the Open Source community in
supporting the development and implementation of SISO standards.
