Subject Re: [VOTE] Distribution guidelines for platforms
Date Sun, 12 Jul 2020 02:55:53 GMT
HI,

> This lacks proper reference to existing Apache Policies and instead rewrites it.

There no rewriting here. If you want reference to policies does this work for you?

"In addition to the Apache mirror system incubating projects may distribute artifacts on other
platforms as long as they follow these general guidelines:
	•	Releases must be placed in the Apache mirror system. [1]
	•	Source releases and convenience binaries need to be made from IPMC and PPMC approved
ASF releases.[2][3]
	•	Where possible it should be pointed out that Apache project make source releases and
convenience binaries are just a convenience for end user.[4]
	•	Convenience binaries need to follow licensing policy and not include any category X licensed
software. [5]
	•	Convenience binaries should be signed and have hashes to verify their contents. [6]
	•	Release candidates, nightlys and snapshots must not be advertised to the general public.[7]
	•	Apache project branding and naming needs to be respected. [8]
	•	It should be clear that the artifacts are under the ALv2 license.[9]
	•	An incubating disclaimer must be clearly displayed where the artifacts are made available.
[10]
	•	All PPMC members must have access to administer the platform and the credentials recorded
where any PPMC member can access them. [11]
	•	Where possible these artifacts should not be referred to as releases.[12]
	•	Where possible use platforms officially supported by Infra. [13]

All of the above SHOULD be followed. The podling can ask the IPMC for permission to do otherwise.”

Again this is to help podling comply with existing policy and does not rewrite it.

Thanks,
Justin
