This question would probably be better asked on the
foundation at lists.openstack.org mailing list since the openstack-dev
audience doesn't generally have direct control over content on
www.openstack.org/legal, but the wording seems to have been
partially copied from the Ubuntu community's[1] which refers to
their analogue[2] of our TC.
