The Maven Foundation

20 Sep 2006

 Jason van Zyl is a respected member, and no longer works for Mergere,
 but has set up a separate fundraising effort for Maven infrastructure.
 Is this something the ASF should fund?  What role should the Maven
 PMC have in this operation?

 The board had a few concerns with the above, not least of which
 was the trademark issue: Maven is a trademark of the ASF
 and the Maven Foundation would be confusing at least and
 infringing and the most. There was also concern on the potential
 confusion and damage it could create within the Maven project
 as well. Since Jason did not attend the board meeting, although
 he was expected, Henri was to contact him regarding the board's
 curiosity regarding the foundation.
