Bianca Kramer, on the European Commission’s second go-around on its RFP for a preprint platform:

The use of proprietary technology is now allowed, with the Commission only requiring a non-exclusive license for the duration of the contract, and longer only for specific customizations. In addition, the handover will now only include the content of the platform as well as specific customizations, with the goal of transferring them to another publishing infrastructure if desired by the Commission.

The EC seems content to sacrifice OA infrastructure for OA content.
