Subject [Incubator Wiki] Update of "TrafficServerProposal" by LeifHedstrom
Date Thu, 02 Jul 2009 18:01:41 GMT
Dear Wiki user,

You have subscribed to a wiki page or wiki category on "Incubator Wiki" for change notification.

The following page has been changed by LeifHedstrom:

  === An excessive fascination with the Apache brand ===
  Our decision to apply to the ASF is simple. Y! has already contributed several projects
to the ASF, and the Apache collaboration model and license further Yahoo!'s goals.
+ === Trade Mark ===
+ Traffic Server is currently a trademark owned by Yahoo! in four jurisdictions: Australia,
Japan, Norway and the United States.The registrations in Japan and the U.S. are set to expire
this year (2009). The registration in Australia is set to expire at the end of May 2010. That
leaves the registration in Norway which is set to expire in March 2019.
+ Two proposals are on the table: The first solution is to simply assign all right, title
and interest in and to the TRAFFIC SERVER mark including the four active registrations to
ASF (though we'd probably want to make this contingent on TS graduating from the incubator).
Our second possible option is to provide ASF with a letter of assurance stating that we own
all right, title and interest in and to the TRAFFIC SERVER mark and the four active registrations
and that we will not take any action against ASF or any of its licensees during the life of
these registrations (and we'd express our intention of letting them lapse and expire).
  == Documentation ==
  TS comes with both an Administration Guide and a Developer Guide. Work will begin soon to
improve this documentation, and the hope is to move it to our podling web site once activated.
