Because I've been too busy to attend BayPIGgies meetings, I didn't pay
much attention earlier, but I'm a bit concerned that we devoted two
meetings to a single commercial product, especially one that doesn't
offer an Open Source license and doesn't list prices on its website.
(Let alone my bias against websites that require JavaScript to view

Part of the reason I haven't offered to repeat my OSCON talk about the
work I'm doing at egnyte.com is because I think that BayPIGgies should
have a strong bias in favor of Open Source because Python itself is Open

What do other people think?  Did people who attended the meetings about
SPM feel that they got enough technical value even if they never use SPM?
