Subject [jira] [Commented] (PODLINGNAMESEARCH-23) Establish whether "Apache CloudStack" is a suitable name
Date Mon, 25 Feb 2013 19:16:13 GMT


Shane Curcuru commented on PODLINGNAMESEARCH-23:


Note that this really points out a hole in the podling name search policy.  We need to update
it to say (something like): If the podling has a well-established name over a period of several
years, and the donor of the podling's IP is explicitly granting the trademark rights to the
name to the ASF as part of the incubation/graduation, then the podling name search step is
simply informing trademarks@ of this fact.

If there's a well-established name (or especially a registered one, although that's not required)
being donated, that in of itself is a very strong indicator that the name will continue to
be suitable, especially when we include it within the Apache Foo branding.  Obviously, if
there are any previous or current complaints or issues with the pre-existing name, then trademarks@
and the PPMC need to evaluate those to ensure they can be dealt with as an Apache project.

Thanks to CloudStack PPMC for being diligent as always!
