[steering-discuss] Fw: screen-shots Documentation Team
It is probably just me being paranoid. I'm sure the people in Documentation
Team are robust and intelligent enough to stand their ground. There are a few
new people that are very active and wouldn't appreciate being pulled in the
It would be great to have a few relevant links or something quotable.

Subject: screen-shots Documentation Team
The documentation team has been told by various people (over the past several
months) that taking screen-shots in Windows could put us at risk. Since those
people appeared to have some level of legal awareness or in some cases read and
quoted the Windows Eulas the team decided to make it part of the re-branding
work to protect us from that sort of vulnerability.
Now a single individual quotes from a children's fairy story saying "the sky is
not falling, as Chicken Little imagined." and says that people have wasted time
re-branding because MS never takes any organisations or people to court over
Gary is also telling people to abandon the established work-flow and use his own
personal websites to do the work instead of using the Alfresco websites and
ODFauthors places that the Documentation Team established that protect works
under copyleft licences that were also agreed within the team.
He has carefully timed his advice to coincide with the person the team sees as
leader going away on holiday.
Can anyone point me to a list of MS court actions or specific parts of the
Windows Eula that might put us at risk? A quick google search on the Tom Tom
case gave me
Can anyone give me more relevant examples?
The documentation team is very small and needs a lot of support right now.
David is doing great work at developing the functionality of the Alfresco sites
and i had hoped that we could just get on with doing the work while Jean was
away rather than dealing with a power-grab and disruptive actions seemingly
designed to drive morale through the floor.
