The reason I’m pushing back on fluo being in compliance with Apache trademark policy is
that we currently have a mess with several other projects. PMCs are having a difficult time
defending Apache’s brands.

“The other guys are not in compliance so we don’t have to be” is not a good response.
We are trying to straighten out other misuses of Apache trademarks and don’t want any more
issues while we figure out how to fix the others.
