Subject [jira] [Commented] (LEGAL-95) Should our web sites have an explicit "Terms of Use"?
Date Fri, 22 Jul 2011 12:24:58 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LEGAL-95?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13069520#comment-13069520

Sam Ruby commented on LEGAL-95:

> I think requiring AL for project websites is appropriate.

I doubt that will be controversial.  :-)

>  It would be great if we had a Maven and Forrest volunteer to document how to apply this
to generated sites using those tools. 

Not just for Maven and Forrest, but also for all changes to the entire website, and for our
expectations of projects.

> Should our web sites have an explicit "Terms of Use"?

> I was recently asked about the terms of use/license of an ASF project's web site. I responded
that the content was AL v2, but then spent a few seconds trying to provide proof of that statement.
I wasn't successful... The content was copyright Apache Software Foundation, but there was
no indication of the license for the content. I sampled a few projects and found varying results:
> Some sites were copyright the ASF and licensed under AL v2 (including www.apache.org).
Other sites were simply copyright the ASF. Other sites had no copyright or license statement
at all.
> Do we have guidelines describing what's expected/required of our projects? Should we
set some guidelines?
