Date Tue, 09 Aug 2016 01:00:37 GMT

I wanted to start a separate thread regarding some of your branding
comments below, to make sure we're all on the same page.

This is all expected.  We don't replace those releases, just need to make
sure they're pre-apache releases and regarded as such.  Its really just a
call out to make sure its clear they're not vetted the way releases will be

Regarding the domain name, an option there for you is to donate to
the ASF as a part of joining the incubator.  You may want to follow up with
infra directly, but typically they do maintain domain names for projects,
as long as its all hosted on our infrastructure.
