I haven't actually made my mind up yet what exactly defines an "Open
Source job". But, I have the feeling there's need for a platform that
has a very strict set of job offers. A company that just promises to
"give back" isn't good enough in my eyes. If a job is "working on a
product", the product should be Open Source, not only the tools used.

501c3: fossjobs.net for now is just a "personal" website without any
official status. That said, I am interested in all sorts of
partnerships. What do you have in mind?

You can also find me as "gamambel" on IRC (OFTC/Freenode).
