Subject Re: How documentation != code, and how to "do" policy (was: Re: Publishing api docs for Subversion)

There's also a world of difference between worldwide distribution
and distribution to a self-selected subgroup.  Niclas has no clue
what he's talking about when liability considerations are factored in,
and as this is not a list where legal council for the ASF makes itself
available I suggest his words be considered with a big fat IMHO around
them.
