Subject Re: [DISCUSS] NLPCraft Proposal
Date Wed, 05 Feb 2020 13:22:30 GMT
Let me reply on these.

1. The common clause will be removed (if and when the project enters ASF
Incubator). I mentioned that in my last reply.
2. nlpcraft.* domains will be donated to ASF during the incubation period.
3. There are historical mentions of DataLingvo in the source code (here and
there) and that needs to be cleaned up (they are just an artefact of
migration from repo to repo). All the code that will be migrated to ASF
will be cleaned up. No code grants should be necessary.
4. Agree on user list...
