[OpenID board] Motion: allow use of OpenID trademark on Google Code (part 1 of 2)

I'm fine with centralizing the libraries, but I wasn't aware we were going to move to Google Code.

Will Norris, Brian Ellin and I spent this week getting the PHP libraries mounted onto Github. Personally I really like the flexibility of git and it was easier to get started and accept patches, so unless there's a really compelling reason, I'd like to keep it here:


However, it has the same issues in that it's using the OpenID logo, so we'd still need to go through this process I think.

We've batted around the idea of moving the OpenID libraries to Google Code for some time [1] and I'd like to make a motion to make this happen.

My goals are to:

 1.  increase the visibility of and convenience of access to the OpenID libraries
 2.  increase activity and community involvement in contributions to the OpenID libraries
 3.  make use of more collaboration-friendly source control systems (GitHub can be used as a feeder to the mainline Google Code repo)
 4.  make sure that we have a transparent mechanism for recording and assigning bugs (OpenIDEnabled.com's trac setup returns a 404 for the login page: http://trac.openidenabled.com/trac/login, and an account is required to submit new tickets)
 5.  move away from darcs for simply checking out copies of the libraries
 6.  etc.

So, this motion boils down to granting Google the right to use the OpenID trademark on the Google Code project.

If this motion passes, Dewitt will unlock the project and assign myself, Dave Recordon, Will Norris, Luke Shepard and Brian Ellin as the initial project admins.

I will commit to migrating the content on OpenIDEnabled.com to either the Google Code wiki or the OpenID wiki itself.

So, with that, I look forward to your +1's.
