Subject [site] RFCs
Date Tue, 03 Feb 2009 07:30:01 GMT
ATM the james server site contains a number of RFCs
(http://james.apache.org/server/rfclist.html).

the copyright on these documents allows verbatim distribution but not
the production of derivative works. i think that it would be ok to
distribute them as part of a release but there'd be some sorting out
to do over on legal-discuss and probably some changes required to
LICENSE and NOTICE files.

i was wondering whether it might be better to move the RFCs to the top
level site (into http://james.apache.org/spec, perhaps). the old URLs
would be redirected using a .htaccess to preserve incoming links.

this would have the disadvantage that the RFCs would not be shipped
with the server (and so would not be available offline) but would have
the advantage that all products could link to a central set of
standards which could be maintained centrally (perhaps with separate
commentary).

opinions?
