Subject RE: [DISCUSS] TM in website graphic images
Date Fri, 28 Sep 2012 13:11:54 GMT
I did a survey of the 184 ASF projects listed on this page: <>
- this is a list of products, not top-level projects, e.g. Lucene Core and Solr are listed

I counted 77 of the 184 (42%) with some form of TM next to at least one graphic image on the
site (e.g., Commons products' sites often have TM on the Commons logo, but not on the product
logo - I counted these among the 77).  A fair number of the 184 are no longer active (i.e.,
in the Attic), though, so the percentage of active project with TMs in graphic images is somewhat
higher than 42%, maybe something like 45%.

Almost all of the 77 incorporate the TM in the graphic images, rather than placing textual
TMs adjacent to the images.

I dunno, this seems like there is some room for interpretation.
Looking at the old threads it seemed some people didnt want the image
quality screwed up, thats all.

I interpret the statement as "its also ok to add some html that puts a
little TM next to the graphic". Maybe this would be easier to
implement and less controversial.
