Subject Re: Publishing api docs for Subversion
Date Thu, 03 Dec 2009 02:38:43 GMT
A lot of our website stuff has peculiar licensing on it; and I don't
think anyone really cares whether or not a given webpage is Apache-licensed
or not.  So I think Doug is stretching things a bit when he equates the
standards for software releases and standards for website publishing
(where we only assume Apache has a license to publish the content).
