Subject RE: An invitation to committers to the OOo Community Forums
Date Thu, 01 Sep 2011 19:26:37 GMT

I believe Terry is talking about the domain in situ and the existing OOo forums
there.  This has nothing to do with anything under Apache ooo custody at this time, nor does
it have anything to do with the test version he has running in order to learn how to port.
 It was an offer to provide any interim support on the live forums, and understand
their administration ther, not anything on Apache.

I assume that the rights that Terry Ellison has on is not anything that were
conferred to him via the ASF.

I believe that there is no policy matter here, and if it is it is between Oracle and Terry
and those Terry approves to be there.

There is certainly a policy matter on how administration is done on a port to Apache if we
insist on operating it on an domain.

There is a different policy matter, but still one, if we continue to operate it on the
domain even though hosted in some sanitary way on Apache infrastructure.

We already have unresolved discussions on other threads concerning that.

Let me be clearer then.  The -1 is to your proposal to invite
committers and assign them permissions to a private forum.  This is
not a technical objection, but a policy objection.  Please do not take
further steps on this until we can get a Mentor to weigh in on.
