Subject Re: Help with task: Ensure all Apache TLPs have Wikipedia pages
Date Thu, 22 Mar 2018 09:33:31 GMT
Roy,

I spoken with the editor concerned [1] and it should be possible for you
to recreate the Apache Celix page and any other pages that that editor
removed.

For future reference in case it helps you or others:

The content of all of our web sites is licensed under the Apache
License, version 2 unless explicitly stated otherwise. I can't think of
any examples of alternative licencing off the top of my head but there
might be a few instances somewhere.

The ALv2 permits re-use (see sections 2 and 4 in particular).

While section 6 of the ALv2 may appear to prevent the use of logos, it
does not prevent nominative use [2] and our policy explicitly calls out
using the logo in an article to refer to the project as being OK [3].

HTH,

Mark
