Subject ASF Member/Committer AUP
Date Mon, 02 Dec 2002 14:01:54 GMT
I have been following the discussion about publicizing ASF Member/Committer
home pages.  The contentious issue seems to be what is appropriate use of
a home page hosted on apache, or even if there should be home pages at all.

A major concern of those against the proposal is that pages hosted at
apache.org will be seen as represensting the ASF.  They are concerned
about protecting the Apache brand.

Throughout the discussion no one pointed to any ASF documentation on
what acceptable use is. With the ASF developer community growing to over
500 committers perhaps what is needed is an AUP which addresses appropriate
use of their email account, home page, and commit privs.  Nothing draconian,
but something that can set expectations of what is acceptable use and give
the ASF Board/PMC a foundation for making decisions when someone crosses
the line.
