Subject Re: [VOTE] List CloudStack related books on the website
Date Mon, 27 May 2013 18:14:08 GMT
-1 list of books etc. on website (binding, if committers are allowed to do

The list should be on the project wiki and not on the website.
Even if we have the right intention, the website should ought not be seen
as platform of promoting anything other than the materials published within
Apache CloudStack, which means promoting anything which means books,
goodies and things of that sort.

What we can do is create a wiki on things about CloudStack, which we
already have and in the education/how-to section add list of books related
to CloudStack or cloud computing, but on the wiki and not on the website.
