We formally moved from OKF/OKFN to Open Knowledge - using the name in full
as this makes us less opaque and confusing to new folks.

To disambiguate between the whole international network of folks (Open
Knowledge, plus Open Knowledge Ireland, etc) and the specific
UK-incorporated entity lead by Rufus, we use "Open Knowledge International"
informally for the UK entity. (For a while previously, we used 'Central',
but this is now superseded.)   "Open Knowledge International" is generally
only going to be used by folks who are aware that there's a network and
need to tell the difference (such as local chapters themselves).

Just to check, we have now formally moved from  OKF to OK and now to OKI?
