Open Source Practises: The Second 90%

Grab your code. Slam it into Sourceforge's CVS, and put up a web page or thirty. And you're off! Or are you?

Open source development has never been as supported or as understood by the software industry than it is today. There are still many unsolved problems. What about patent issues? Cryptography?

How does your company interact with the rest of the open source community, when push comes to schedule? How do you choose a license, or maybe two? We will discuss the current state of various Open Source arts, and then the speaker will submit to a battery of ridicule and questions.
