DocType seems to be a little different than the rest of the Stack Exchange sites, old and new. There are various references to a 'Litmus', but it's not quite clear what the relationship is between the Stack Exchange network and DocType.

From the DocType FAQ:

Who built Doctype?

Doctype was built by the people who run Litmus...

Does this mean that these 'Litmus' people are running a franchise of sorts for the stack exchange system?

Or is DocType wholly owned and run by Stack Overflow Internet Services Inc.?


It isn't owned or run by Stack Overflow Internet Services. It belongs to Litmux and is run by them.

See the blog post Stack Overflow and Doctype where Jeff explains the situation of them being inspired by Stack Overflow.
