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

                 Key: LEGAL-95
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LEGAL-95
             Project: Legal Discuss
          Issue Type: Question
            Reporter: Kevan Miller


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?
