legal-discuss -- Discussions on legal matters related to the project


About legal-discuss
English (USA)

The mailing list is a forum for questions (even FAQs) that have a legal aspect to them. These questions may concern (for example) licensing, third party packages, contributor agreement questions and trademark issues. This list will build into an ad-hoc knowledge base about those thorny legal issues that most commonly effect the OpenStack project.

In other words, this list has similar intent to,,,, etc.

Opinions expressed on this this list do not constitute legal advice from the OpenStack Foundation, unless explicitly stated.

Please keep speculation to a minimum and avoid making authoritative statements without genuine knowledge of the subject.

Volunteers willing to codify conclusions into our legal issues FAQ will be welcomed.
