Yeah here was the background on this. The prior-to-Apache Any23 folks
were funded by several projects out of the European Union and they had
this external service that let folks call their RDF web service for Any23, 
I think it was hosted (and is hosted) at

So anyways Lewis was asking an infrastructure question related to Apache Any23
in the Incubator here, that  seems to have turned into a branding question:

The infra one:
1. Should we move this external service/site over to ASF hardware

The branding one (via Richard who manages the external site) and an inspection of the external site:

1. If that site has some logos on it from the research institutions where Any23 was
at before it came to the ASF, can we like include a thanks page associated with
the incoming page and/or the Any23 website that still conforms to project branding
rules but maybe lets us keep the logos (with nofollow tags) on them to say "thanks
research institutions in the European Union for originally funding this before coming
to the ASF."

I asked Greg about this on GChat and am bring the conversation on list.

Checking out:


led us to:

There isn't much guidance there on Project or PMC specific "thanks pages".

I am thinking of either opening up a new trademarks JIRA issue or
a new thread on trademarks@ to discuss this because I think that 
it should be OK to say "thanks" to upstream contributors of software
that is donated or granted to the Apache Software Foundation, in a manner
such as a thanks page including either text or some logos (with no follow)
links to point back to the lineage and say thanks.
