Brian reported that an Apache boating firm had requested the right to use the apache.net domain name. That name is currently owned by Gordon Irlam, and that his original intention was to reserve it against misuse by other companies. The board's consensus was that Brian should ask Gordon if he wants to transfer ownership of the domain to the ASF, and if so to complete the transfer and not allow the boating firm to use the domain. Otherwise, it is up to Gordon.
