OK - I take it that the * is going to be maintained for
some period of time.

Looking at four sites: - the TOU points to an internal page:

[Action Item] Update page with the change in status from Oracle to
Apache ownership.

That page has a brief paragraph on privacy and links to another page for
more details:

[AI] Replace that page with our new privacy policy page, stored on the website.

The 10 language forums at also link to this
English only page for TOU. So, assuming is alive no
change would be required here, IMO.

The wiki currently has no link to a Terms of Use page that I can find.
It does have a link in the footer for a Privacy Policy, which leads to
this page:


[AI] Change the wiki footer to use the TOU page on the main OO.o site
and by reference the new Privacy Policy.

The extension and template repository. Uses a link in the footer, Terms
and Policies, this currently leads to this page:

another :-/

[Ai] Change the footer to use the TOU page on the main OO.o site.

This sound about right to folks?


ps will send a separate email to list specifically on question of using
Google analytics.
