Subject RE: Citrix CloudStack product vs. Apache CloudStack project technical documentation
Date Thu, 17 May 2012 10:55:47 GMT
Thank you Jessica and Wido for triggering a conversation on CloudStack documentation. 

I would like to add to what Jessica was discussing here.  We, documentation team, are inviting
potential documentation contributors from the community.  What we are looking for is a couple
of documentation enthusiasts who can diligently review our documentation for the Apache CloudStack
project.  We can completely make use of the IRC facility for any discussions around documentation
reviews. Probably, we can also plan regular Apache documentation project meeting over IRC.

What we can offer you back is a byline (credit line) for your contributions and a solid documentation
for Apache CloudStack Documentation.

Let's hear your voice...

The intent of my note was to put forth the intended project name, logo, and copyright which
will be used for documentation within the Apache project called CloudStack. I suppose the
fact that it will differ from the Citrix commercial version was a "red herring" which distracted
from the point of the note. Sorry about that.

Since this e-mail hit the CloudStack developer mailinglist I'm wondering what the Apache project
has to do with a commercial version of the documentation and/or internal Citrix products?

The Apache project will only focus on the Open Source version where the "commercial" version
with separate documentation is something that is up to Citrix, am I right?

Or did I read this e-mail wrong?
