The synapse ones are clearly software though... At this point I am not 
trying
to argue to use or non-use of a name. Just understand how does Apache 
deals with this.

Maybe we should use Synapse as the comp project to understand as it is 
quite a
recent project, and this link 
http://www.synapse.co.in/homepage/trademarks.shtml.

How was the decision made around Synapse?

Carl.
