Subject Re: Can (Podling) Projects collect funds through certification programs?
Date Tue, 13 Dec 2011 11:15:53 GMT
My questions is not about who collects the money, we can forward requests
to http://www.apache.org/foundation/sponsorship.html

But can we list those companies / individuals separated on our project
website?

Thanks,
Sebastian
