General name and one which is generally used in all outwards facing
communication is "Open Knowledge". We have definitely moved from OKF or
OKFN to simple Open Knowledge.

When one wants to distinguish the specific original non-profit
(incorporated in E&W) that is non-country specific (unlike Chapters) the
term Open Knowledge International is used.

This was discussed on okfn-discuss and Open Knowledge International was
used in analogy with Open Knowledge *Germany* or Open Knowledge *Austria*.
In general and at present, Open Knowledge "International" is not used
except in "inside the community" discussions.
