Ok, but who from Caucho would allow e.g. me to try to build a community?
Do I need to be explicitly allowed or can I just go for it?
ps: I mean a typical php-community addressed to end-users that don't
care about all the fancy app server and java specific stuff.
>>> So why not start a community around Resin-Quercus that focuses the

>>> - Making the most common php-based applications 100% work (e.q.

>>> - Making the most used Pear scripts work with Quercus
>>> - Patching still buggy built-in functions and ship them in a
>>> contribution (it is possible to patch them without touching the core

>>> - Providing community specific resources like how-tos, forums, etc.
