Subject Re: [WWW] OOo accepted projects websites have been backed up (svn checkout) to my Apache area

I've done the same locally with my script.

Most of the OOo website uses a license called Public Documentation License 1.0.

It is supposedly MIT equivalent. What I am trying to track down is how the "Initial Writer"
is documented. Once that is done then I think the next step is to confirm that PDL can be
categorized as Category A.

I do not want to speculate about that until we can confirm how "Initial Writers" are documented,
but I am assuming that documentation contributed to OOo is OK. If the PDL turns out to incompatible
with AL2.0, but permitted on an Apache hosted or apache-extras, then we are
still good. I know the Rob wants stronger all AL2.0 docs, but for this step we are only trying
to preserve what exists now.

I have seen meta tags like this in a portion of the html: <META NAME="AUTHOR" CONTENT="<name>">.
In that case it may be clear who the initial writer, but if that is missing I am completely
clueless. How would you find this information? Did the migration to Kenai cause the loss of
the necessary information? Is StarOffice/Sun/Oracle almost always the "Initial Writer"?
