And I'm just trying to get something of an understanding of this stuff. I
feel like committers should have a good idea of the rules here. At one point
it was said: "I think its pretty clear...", but its certainly not clear to
me - and if I read the Apache stuff, its not clear either because
we haven't used that standard in the past. That just leaves me with you old
fogies as the source of what I should do in the future :)

I'm def not a fan of policy not matching action though. If I read
that draconian policy page before I used Apache Software, I would hate to
later find out, oh wait, that doesn't really apply to most of the projects,
even though it claims to. Almost seems like an argument that we don't want
to have though.

Either way, I know much more about this stuff than I did (which was very
little), so I'm happy.
