- From what I can tell, anyone can go to the confluence site, create
and start adding/modifying content. This makes sense, because it is
desirable for people to be able to easily join the community and
documentation. However, from what I understand about ASF policy, any
documentation that is distributed with a release artifact can only be
contributed by people who have signed a CLA. So, what we've been
is to have a separate space that is limited such that only people
signed a CLA have access to contribute content. Then, that content
exported and bundled with releases as official documentation.
For more information see the section titled "Can we use the
autoexport site as
part of our main web site?" at http://cwiki.apache.org/CWIKI/

separate wiki will be needed -- one for official documentation
included with releases and one containing contributions from
individual who have not signed the CLA. A request has been made to
one of the mentors who had offered to create a 2nd wiki instance.
This has not been completed yet.
I've never heard of ASF hosting Wiki's where no CLA has been signed.
Does anyone have an example of an existing ASF project that does
this? If not, can someone point me to the VCL archive thread so I
