Hi all,
I understand that people have a lot to say on this topic, however this is
most definitely not the list to say it on.  No one on this list has the
legal authority to represent or make decisions on behalf of the ASF and this
is an ASF decision.  The recommendation that author tags not be used came
down from the board of the ASF which does have the ability to make such
decisions, nothing we say here will change that.

I certainly don't intend to tell people not to voice their opinions on this
matter, every decision in the ASF can potentially be reversed but such
issues need to be taken to the ASF board or at least the PMC (the PMC is
apparently already hotly debating this topic).

My biggest problem at the moment is thinking of a list that non-committers
can subscribe to that would be appropriate for this conversation.  license@
is closed, community@ is closed board@ is closed, pmc@ is closed.  Where
exactly is the best place for these conversations to take place in a manner
that is open to contributions from everyone?
