Subject Re: [DISCUSS] Adding 'apache-' to our artifact names
Date Sun, 15 Mar 2015 03:49:13 GMT
Does anyone know of other projects that do this?

The standard post-incubator trademark guidelines already will have people
saying "Apache NiFi" for the first reference in a document. That's plenty

Also, we're still incubator, which means we have to caveat any claims to
the ASF marks.
