-------------------------------------------------------------

I've been pinged about this at ApacheCon Core and have spoken to a number of board members
who are present at the conference. The consensus of those board members (Rich, Shane, Bertrand,
David) is that the initial text at the beginning of section 7.3 "Except for the distribution
of freely available Licensed Applications..." applies to all of section 7.3 and therefore
does not prevent the ASF from distributing source and/or binaries for apps via alternative
distribution channels. Note that there is actually little/no point distributing binaries via
alternative channels since users won't be able to install them.

I've checked on the current status of our application and it has essentially timed out. I
have therefore taken the following actions:

1. I have updated the name of the root@a.o Apple account to the current V.P. Infra
2. I have updated the contact address to the 1901 Munsey Drive address
3. I have removed the telephone number

I plan to start the enrollment process again. I will agree to anything we have previously
agreed to. If one of the agreements includes terms similar to 7.3 described above (it is posisble
that the agreements have changed over the last 12 months) I intend to proceed under lazy consensus
(i.e. 72 hours from now) based on the guidance received from the board members described above.

Update: Reading this I spotted a rather important typo that I have now fixed. The board members
above were of the view that 7.3 does NOT prevent the ASF distributing via other channels.

> Hello, I'm seeking approval for Apache Cordova from VP of Legal to create an Apple Developer
Account for distribution of iOS apps in the App Store. This is the information and/or authority
required to register for the program:
> - The legal authority to bind your company/organization to Apple Developer Program legal
agreements.
> - A registered legal entity name. This name will appear as the "Seller" in the App Store.
> - Address for the company’s principal place of business or corporate headquarters.
> - A D-U-N-S Number assigned to a legal entity. Learn more.
> - A valid credit card for purchase.
> Background thread on legal-discuss: http://goo.gl/SalCgf
> UPDATE:
> Apple content is back online. You can review legal terms here: https://developer.apple.com/programs/start/standard/
> UPDATE:
> Creating an Apple ID requires agreeing to Privacy [1] and Terms [2].
> [1] http://www.apple.com/privacy/
> [2] http://www.apple.com/legal/
> (And yes that second link really doesn't have any terms associated with it. =/ )
> UPDATE:
> Terms and Conditions reveal themselves:
> http://www.apple.com/legal/sla/docs/ios6.pdf
> (Note: T&C appears to be different depending on the target OS. All can be seen here:
