Might it be better to improve the existing Apache trademark policy page?


This way all projects can benefit, e.g., Pig, Hive, Zookeeper, etc.

We might, e.g., propose more examples of acceptable and not-acceptable
uses of Apache marks there, etc.  We can work with trademarks@ to build
a library of boilerplate letters to be sent to folks whose use Apache
marks in objectionable ways.
