Subject [jira] [Closed] (LEGAL-95) Should our web sites have an explicit "Terms of Use"?
Date Fri, 03 Jul 2015 08:14:05 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LEGAL-95?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel

Henri Yandell closed LEGAL-95.
    Resolution: Done

Closing this. Pages state the license is Apache 2.0 (or if missing can add that if someone
raises it), and the Privacy Policy covers other aspects.

> 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?
