Subject Re: [DISCUSS] CloudStack Marketplace Update
Date Fri, 14 Dec 2012 18:33:32 GMT
The proposal talks about a "Apache Listing Repository" and discusses
choices of where to host it.
The proposal should remove "Apache" from that description.

I agree with the sentiment in this thread:
the ACS git repository is not the right place to have these listings.
