Which is the exact wording of the disclaimer? there are two
presentations on beehive in the JavaHispano congress, Wed and Thu, and I
want to make sure that the disclaimer is well known by them and make
appropriately there:

AFAIK, there has been no contact prior to this with press@ or prc@, but
I could be wrong. Also, the presenter is not a committer in the
incubator module, again AFAIK.
