Subject Re: [DISCUSS] Freemarker Incubation proposal
Date Tue, 02 Jun 2015 23:42:24 GMT
That's certainly won't be a problem in reality, as Jacopo said.

What I'm curious about is if what happens if Freemarker gets into the
Incubator but then sadly later fails to graduate, so then it has to
continue outside ASF, probably with the earlier owners. I guess then
we will have to fork the work done during incubation (or can that be
given back with some kind of SLG?), which is messy (complicates the
license permanently, right?), but doable. But we will need to get the
product name back too! Is that "promised" formally somewhere, or how
does that go? Well, let's hope no such thing will happen, but still, I
should know this.
