Subject Re: [CONF] Apache CXF > Commercial CXF Offerings
Date Fri, 04 Feb 2011 02:51:57 GMT
In my opinion, the first amendment is relatively relevant to the
mailing list. A polite, infrequent, announcement of a commercial
offering of potential interest to the users is just find by me,
personally, and I know of no ASF policy to the contrary. It is of
course going to be a matter of gray to decide if someone pushes the
limits of 'polite' and 'infrequent'.
