Subject Status of HADOOP-7020?
Date Fri, 29 Mar 2013 19:16:10 GMT
Reviewing a number of trademark questions and third party uses of Hadoop 
out there recently, it seems like it would be notably easier to police 
uses of our beloved elephant logo if there were a specific, authorized 
*version* of the logo to serve as a "Powered By" indicator.

In that case, third party uses of the official Hadoop elephant would be 
simpler to review, because it *should* mean very specifically actual 
code from an Apache Hadoop download.  Uses of the Powered By Hadoop 
elephant would be allowed in much broader contexts, so we would have a 
much easier time reviewing third party uses of that logo (i.e., do they 
actually incorporate some Hadoop code with their thing).

Just sayin', we could do a better job of making it easier for third 
parties to respect our brand if we provided this kind of thing.

P.S. Personally I thought the elephant head with the blue hard hat would 
be excellent, although that's for the PMC to choose.
