As I’m PMC again, it is my interpretation of the Apache Way that I have to
“like” it. As long as we keep it brief ;-)

The name Velo came up, so it’s safe to say that it’s been many years. And
the internet is not a "remote gallery” (but I like your analogy, it’s a
clever trick ;-)). They have been freely available to the only interested
audience, so it’s fair to conclude that the entire public has had access
for a long time -> public domain.
