[OpenID board] Who manages OpenID?

This morning it appears Carsten was right. Indeed, it has been changed (and the last paragraph as well). Now the statement reads...
On Monday, JanRain, a leader in the OpenID
community will introduce a new "strong authentication" option to it's
myOpenID.com users. This new strong authentication is named CallVerifID and could replace access keys and keycard devices over time. CallVerifID uses the PhoneFactor service from Positive Networks.
In general, I'm happy to make contacts if/when it's needed and egregious enough to warrant concrete concern. I also don't imagine this to be anything that JanRain team members would assert.

Mashable refers to an article on Center Networks which has been changed by now (it still has an error in the last paragraph about ID Selector being launched by OpenID). Center Networks also had an article on ID Selector which made the claim.
I haven't seen similar claims anywhere else so far, though, so I also don't think it is intentional by JanRain.

This is a very consistent positioning of JanRain having the OpenID Foundation's role, and it is obviously wrong. Note I do not mean to say that that is intentional by anybody -- but I have seen it often enough now that I think the foundation should make a concerted effort to clarify its own role, as well as the role of the vendors that are members of the foundation.
Bill: how do you feel about calling all of the guys up who keep writing this?
