Subject Re: [DISCUSS] YuniKorn Proposal
Date Tue, 17 Dec 2019 22:24:52 GMT
Hi Wangda,

There is a distinction between licensing the code to Apache, which is done via SGA, and giving
Apache rights to the name, which is done by a trademark assignment.

Apache in general will not use the name if Cloudera who owns the name intends to keep using
it. Apache would need to rename the project if Cloudera intends to keep it.

The Yunikorn brand is currently in use by Cloudera. If you can clarify that Cloudera intends
to assign the trademark to Apache, then we will need to have that in writing (in the proposal)
and work with Trademarks to work on the trademark assignment.
