Blatantly Mis-Quoting Sublime

100 points to Freedom.

Dojo, DWR, CometD, OpenRecord, and the newly accepted Psych Desktop project are all 100 for 100 on Dion's scale because we've done the hard work of building a Foundation, ensuring the IP provenance of every checkin, built a community structure that gives everyone who's significantly invested a real voice, and have made the sacrifices that ensure that Dojo Foundation projects aren't just "open", but that they're trustworthy.

Dion's right:

The license is a great starting point, but it isn’t enough.

The Dojo Foundation has open door for any web projects that want to join and will do what it takes to get their score all the way up to 100. If the projects you're using aren't 100 for 100 — particularly given that we make it so easy — isn't it worth asking "why?"
