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

I am going to forward a copy of mail Luke just sent because for some reason
Google is marking his mail as SPAM when it is routed through the
openid.netmailing list servers.  We are looking into that separately.
Hopefully for
those of you on Gmail, this one will get through.

If you do use Gmail (or Google's hosted email), you might want to try adding
a filter for all mail from Luke, and you can specifically tell Gmail NOT to
mark mail from him as SPAM.

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
   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.
