Subject RE: CORBA incubation proposal
Date Thu, 19 Jan 2006 23:01:31 GMT

One thing I just realized is that we don't want the sub-project to
show up as being called CORBA Server. CORBA is trademarked by the 
OMG and that would be an infringement. Thus we can't use CORBA in the name
of the project due to this trademark, so I would suggest something
neutral like "Transport Server".

Carl.

This is a good question.  Do we have any Apache sages to provide any 
guidance?

IIUC, non-commiters get commit privs but must "prove" themselves during 
incubation, i.e. they could get their commit privs taken away.
