Subject Re: target for 2.9.1 release?
Date Thu, 31 Jan 2013 23:39:08 GMT
I wish Janne, you would have gone through and deleted the 
20-60% of the site that is obsolete today.  Let's shrink the problem and 
see where we are after that.  At any rate,, as 
you describe it, is an orphan work and probably not usable for us.  
Maybe we should just shut it down.  If we create our own Wiki (with 
everything henceforth Apache licensed), within a few to several months 
it will probably repopulate with the most useful material that was on 
the old site anyway.  I would suspect pure facts from 
*can* be transferred to the new site as facts aren't copyrightable.

Can the Commons-licensed be donated to 
Apache or does it have the same copyright problem as ?  It would be nice if we could move to the Apache site.

Not necessarily, Apache doesn't own,,,,, and probably many 
others.  I think the main thing though is that the site can't act like 
it's the Apache product. With the two sites above shut down or moved to 
Apache, you might just be able to release the domain instead of giving 
it to Apache.

passing the name to ASF, or whether it was needed in the first place, but I think the consensus
was that it's better that ASF takes control of - even if it's nothing but a redirect
to or or something.

 Right now, all of our documentation is off the Apache site and our informal Wiki ("Legacy
Site") is under lock-and-key due to Finnish legal reasons.

have no control over it (the fact that it's owned by a JSPWiki committer doesn't matter, it's
a third-party site and from an Apache JSPWiki perspective it is outside of our control.) 
But we should have our system documentation and probably a Wiki to be *on* the Apache site,
even if it's duplicated by third party sites like  I would like to get the Infra
folks to host a JSPWiki site (we are *sooo* much faster than Confluence Wikis, and we could
probably get other Apache projects to adopt us) but if they won't do that, and our only options
are (1) hosting our documentation off Apache using JSPWiki or (2) hosting our documentation
on Apache w/Confluence Wiki, perhaps (2), however unpleasant, should be evaluated.
