No-one is questioning any of the above. However, the process as
documented in [1] is that permission needs to be requested to use ASF
marks for each event.

I did some digging in the mail archives and an e-mail was received by
concom early in March and a reply was sent on the same day pointing to
[1] as the new process and highlighting the need to contact trademarks.

I have checked the archives for both the ASF-wide and Hadoop specific
trademarks list and no e-mails have been received by either of those
lists requesting permission to the use the relevant ASF marks for Hadoop
Summit 2016.

There may well be agreements in place covering Hadoop Summit 2016 that
provide the necessary approvals but my searching of the archives has not
found them. Pointers to any such agreements (off-list if the locations
are private please) would be appreciated. Ditto for Hadoop World.

I do not believe we should be adding any events to the official ASF
calendar until we can confirm that the appropriate permissions have been
requested and received.
