Subject Affiliation vs. individual
Date Sat, 04 Nov 2017 18:06:54 GMT

I've discussed this with a few individuals but would like to raise the
discussion with a larger group.


As contributors to the ASF, we represents ourselves as individuals. Some of
us contribute to projects as part of our employment, some of us donate our
time privately.


You the individual is asked to share your employer when going through
processes such as graduation. I get the reason: to ensure diversity in the

However, some of us are donating our private time and may therefore want to
represent ourselves as a private donor rather than involve our employeer in
the discussion.

[Disclosure: I work for a company that is unlikely to have an issue with my
involvement with ASF projects outside what my company cares for.]


Anyone that chooses to do so can use "private donation" instead of the
employer when representing affiliation.
