Subject Re: [PROPOSAL] Setting up an official ASF swag store
Date Sun, 04 Mar 2018 23:27:56 GMT
We have in the past been reluctant to have an official stoee because it
removed business opportunities from others who want to run a store.

That said, nobody is, and the attempts to do so in the past haven't
amounted to much. And I'd like a place to replace my Apache members tshirt
which is falling apart.

So, sure, if someone is going to do the work to make this happen, go for
it.

When we set up https://www.zazzle.com/featherwear I was surprised by how
much work was required to set up each product - most of which have now been
removed because they were classic feather logo.
