Subject Re: Help with task: Ensure all Apache TLPs have Wikipedia pages
Date Fri, 23 Mar 2018 20:51:18 GMT
Hi Mark,

Thank you for your response and sorting this out. At first the page was
nominated for deletion again, even with your answer and pointing to the
License. After some time she changed her mind because she took an actual
look on the website.

For everyone else working on this task, Wikipedia works in the way when you
are using a sentence from the project its websites, you have to
specifically mention the website is licensed under the Apache License as
well.
For an example, see "External links" on [1] : "*Prose in this article was
copied from this source, which is released under an Apache License, Version
2.0.*"

Thanks Mark!

Roy
