What CentOS, RHEL, and HashiCorp’s BSL Mean for the Future of Open Source

Open source has always moved fast. Today, it moves faster than ever, driven by both community demand and corporate interest. On this episode, Perforce’s Javier Perez and OSI’s Stefano Maffulli discuss the impact of recent license changes and the historical push-and-pull between consumers and providers in the world of open source.


  • Reflecting on 25 years of OSI and its widening scope
  • The historical changes that set the stage for open source
  • What’s shaping Linux distributions today (CentOS, RHEL restrictions, HashiCorp’s switch to BSL, and more)
  • The “social contract” between companies and communities
  • The pros and cons of single companies driving open-source communities
  • The commercialized future of open source


  • Javier Perez, Chief Open Source Evangelist and Senior Director of Product Management at Perforce
  • Stefano Maffulli, Executive Director at the Open Source Initiative (OSI)
