Merely because I read this list as a mentor does not mean that I have 
the attention or brainwidth to understand what the PPMC's specific issue 
is with this site, and how important it is to them.

There are probably hundreds of thousands of potentially infringing 
websites on Apache marks.  We, like most trademark holders, need to 
prioritize which ones are most important.  The most important 
prioritization factor for our efforts is the input of our (P)PMCs, since 
they are the group that is most affected by potential mis-use of their 
specific brands.

So actually I'm looking to some of the PPMC members to let trademarks@ 
(which is read by many more people than just me) know what specific 
issues they want addressed.
