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

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

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].
