Subject Re: [PODLINGNAMESEARCH] Tempo - will there be issues using this name?

Thanks.  The ASF has slightly different criteria for a name search than
most software vendors, so this bears discussion.

If someone could forward brief details of the proposed podling, what
company is donating it, and any other name search details to the
privately-archived mailing list then we can look
into it.

In particular, if the donating company is willing to do a more thorough
name search with their counsel and send us the results at, that is immensely helpful to us as a non-profit.
