Subject Re: [PROPOSAL] Get lazy consensus on to recommend that the trademark permission be granted to TLM Ltd
Date Thu, 08 Sep 2011 12:39:19 GMT

on Otherwise, OK!

On the podling's site we are using " and the seagull logo are registered trademarks
of The Apache Software Foundation."

We haven't received positive approval from trademarks@, but no objections either.
