Through the inevitable attribution process of volunteer groups, our very
important Trademarks Working Group has much less participation than we
would like to have.
So this is an invitation for community members to help out by joining the
committee. Basically, your responsibilities involve reading the Trademark
Usage Policy, maybe skimming the old archive to get a sense of our concerns
and standards, and responding to maybe 6-7 emails a month to help judge
whether we can authorize a given trademark usage.
Let me know to volunteer. We'd like a few people who can reasonably commit
to keep an eye on it for a reasonably long continuous period of time (say
the next year). But it's a low-work ongoing commitment, and is really
central to the PSF's mission.
Yours, David Mertz
