I do an InnerSource 101 talk, where I go into the principles of InnerSource and then the techniques. At the core, InnerSource is a culture change. If you get the culture right, then you are more than halfway home. Plus, it helps drive the other changes required for successful InnerSource. The slides can be found at http://www.slideshare.net/jimjag/innersource-enterprise-lessons-from-op…
Not sure what the intent is, or even the need. Community software doesn't "really" describe it.
The fact is that "Open Source" is either (1) already known and understood or (2) gaining traction and just needs to be better explained. Rebranding kills the progress already made by Open Source and simply moves the goalposts.
Instead of wasting time about re-branding, let's spend that time with simple education and advocacy. Must better use of resources and energy.
