I think it's a process. If you look at his archives going back to February,
I think you will see some movement in his attitude.

Look at what he wrote today:

     I think that open source is something worth
     exploring, as we collectively search for ways
     to make electronic voting more secure. Is the
     OVC's open voting system the answer (or the
     "holy grail" as the S.J. Mercury News has put it)?
     I don't know, but such innovation should be
     encouraged, and it's certainly worth a careful look.

I don't think he could possibly have said something like that earlier this
year. Actually, Shamos came out with support for open source in April so
Shamos made this part easier for him.
