Do those idiots we're gonna pay up just because they're *claiming* to have
patents that OSS might infringe upon? They must be out of their minds or
very desperate.

Besides, even if they did detail which software infringes on which patents
no payment will be done since the code will simply be changed to circumvent
the patents. And that's only if we think it's a valid claim, which most
likely will not be the case.
