But this is spam, FSVO spam. His contributions are of dubious merit
and seem mainly self-serving.

I'm with Paul and Noirin. The ASF is as much about community as about
code or other contributions. If AskApache genuinely wants to
contribute, he should license his docs to the ASF where they can (and
would) be reviewed. Linking to external sites should be limitted to
specs or vendor specific details (the distros page links to the gentoo
build docs page, for example).
