Subject Having a "Who uses X" page?
Date Wed, 26 Nov 2014 16:54:38 GMT
Hi, Jena (see below) just gathered some emails about who is using the
software, and I thought this should be on the Jena website, considering the
notes about marketing made at ApacheCon EU.

The issue is how to avoid the impression of endorsing these companies and
make it clear that others can be added. I see other projects like Hadoop
and Lucene have put these kind of lists in a wiki page rather than on the
main pages.

is that the suggested best practice? What legal preamble is needed on such
a page?

companies.
