Sorry, I'm not part of the Steering committee, but I'm very interested in
understanding the principles. I would prefer Open Source solutions like
Alfresco over Google Apps for Document Management System. Obviously with the
respective security requirements. If it's in an internal network or on
Amazon, I don't really see the difference, why does this concern you? or
does this really concern you? I mean if it's in the home of someone, that
will concern me, but if it's running on Amazon or some other Cloud provider,
what is the problem? Wouldn't you prefer to use an OSS solution than Google

I received a request to connect an external Alfresco site to one of our
domain names. Apart from the concern that the workflow hadn't been defined
(why now Alfresco?), I'm a bit sceptical to connecting external servers to
our domain name, because they are associated with us and thus cause
liability issues.

My "policy" would be:

       * hosted services (like the blog, or probably Google Apps) should
can be connected at LibO or TDF domain names if they are from trustworthy

       * self-hosted servers can only be connected if they are in our
infrastructure management and fit our security requirements

Thoughts on that?
