Hey Bill,

I’m not particularly fond of Grunt either, and much prefer the Makefile approach. I may have missed some of the prior discussion but what particular functionality is grunt-saucelabs providing?

Also looking at the README it seems that the project only requires grunt to run itself. And then just requires a custom Mocha runner to be used by the test suite. So worst comes to worst, we can probably continue as we are and just use Grunt to talk to Sauce Labs.

I’d also be interested in us vetting other options such as BrowserStack first though.
