Subject [MENTORS] New DISCLAIMER-WIP approved by board
Date Fri, 23 Aug 2019 01:05:34 GMT

At the recent board meeting, the board has informally approved the use of the DISCLAIMER-WIP.

If you use the DISCLAIMER-WIP disclaimer [1] you can make an ASF release that doesn't need
to follow ASF release policy. You will need to list the reason why in this disclaimer. By
the time you graduate, you are expected to follow all ASF policies.

Note that the release must be legal and follow the licensing conditions of any bundled 3rd
party software. That means if you accidentally put a binary in the release and don't include
the relevant licenses, the release is probably going to get a -1 vote.

For a full list of what you need to follow to make releases this way, see [2].

If it's your first release and you included 3rd party code, I would strongly recommend you
use this new disclaimer.

If you use the old DISCLAIMER, then the release needs to follow ASF release policy.
