Subject FAQ for apache-extras.org
Date Wed, 06 Apr 2011 06:48:36 GMT
L.S.,


In the FAQ at apache-extras.org (
http://community.apache.org/apache-extras/guidelines.html ) it says

"Therefore, we require project owners to respect the Apache Software
Foundation trademark policy, including 1) not using Apache or an
existing Apache project name in your Apache Extras project name, and
2) not using org.apache as the prefix for your bundle or package name.
"

While creating a project called servicemix-extra, this was seemingly
in violation with part 1) because we do in include ServiceMix in the
Apache Extras project name.  Since there are already a lot of projects
out there that have the same naming convention, I suspect the FAQ
entry should read something like...

"Therefore, we require project owners to respect the Apache Software
Foundation trademark policy, including 1) not using Apache in your
Apache Extras project name, 2) not using an existing Apache project
name as your Apache Extras project name, and 3) not using org.apache
as the prefix for your bundle or package name. "

Is this the correct interpretation of the given FAQ entry?  If so,
shouldn't we update the entry to avoid confusing simple souls like
myself?
