Subject [jira] Updated: (LEGAL-29) Document "Legal Affairs" and "Infrastructure" committees
Date Sun, 29 Jun 2008 13:59:45 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LEGAL-29?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel

Stefano Bagnara updated LEGAL-29:

    Attachment: LEGAL-29.diff

Here we are with a first patch to better document the existence of a Legal Affair Committee
and its role.

Here is a list of changes included in the patch:
- added "Legal Affairs" to the main "Foundation Projects" menu (the /legal  folder was not
linked from the main menu)
- changed the legal "home" title to "ASF Legal Affairs Home Page"
- added a description of its role (derived by the board minutes)
- removed news (they was 2006 news and their content was already in the  "Legal Policies,
Forms, and Information for Apache Committers" paragraph)
- added a "Get in touch" section.

Here is a generated preview:

> Here here: http://www.apache.org/foundation/ we have "V.P., Legal Affairs    Sam Ruby".
> There is no other information about the committee.
> Discussing with Robert Burrell Donking about the process to create/alter ASF policies
here is his sentence:
> ----------
> members appoints and oversees the board. the board appoints committees from the membership
to deal day to day with some matters. in this case, the policy is set by infrastructure and
legal-affairs committers. changing policy means lobbying these committees who will then consider
proposals and take them to the membership. i'm a member and on the legal-affairs committee
but IIRC i haven't spoken with that hat on in this forum.
> ----------
> The www.apache.org does not have big references to this "Legal Affairs" and "Infrastructure"
committees and what they are their duties and member list.
> I think this stuff should be public and documented (maybe I didn't find it). I'm not
able to propose text and places for this, because even if I am a PMC committer I don't have
this knowledge.
