    Hi James:

    I remember Simon Phipps explaining to me how Open Source Software (OSS) licenses work. He cautioned me to learn about intellectual property and patents. He grumbled about some sort of unholy alliance and then threw back a shot of whisky. And a legend was born. 🙂

    Sauce Labs made its deal with the VC community last year. I was a bit astonished since no one on the Selenium project seemed to care about the alliance. I’m glad for Sauce’s efforts to move Selenium into an OSS governance body. It makes me wonder if anyone can definitively say that they own Selenium?
