Relax, Pradeep. The confusion/noise is only from the fact that OSM has been a longstanding acronym for Open Street Maps, which is an important facet of Open Knowledge Culture. To be very frank, I was completely unaware of the term OSM for Open Source Movement, and also read Tory's acronym as Open Street Maps, and while being very pleased to learn that Sudhanwa was a contributor to it, was confused in equal measure by (what I assumed was) his shyness to being identified with Wikimedia.
