One of the things I really like about my current job is that we developers are encouraged to make open source contributions.
However, this encouragement has always been verbal. I've read some horror stories about developers having their open-source work legally claimed by their employer. I'd be more comfortable if we had something in writing from my employer saying that contributions are allowed and not owned by the company.
Understanding that you are not lawyers, does anyone know where to find a boilerplate document to this effect?
