That is correct.

Please point to one of these new rules. Everything in come from existing ASF policy put into
context for these platforms. This is advice to help projects comply with policy. Some podlings
are currently not doing that. How else would you suggest we fix that?

Well another alternative I see is to ban the use of all alternative channels until we do have
ASF policy in place for their use. I don’t think projects would be happy with that.
