That's a great point.
Is it enough to mention "ASL2.0" in the footer and link to a licensing
page, like the current oVirt.org
website does? Or should we say more?
IMHO, the license matters at earliest when you're downloading (so not on
the front page), and probably only when you're making changes (the
"Developer" or "Contributor" pages). The important thing is to let
people know that the product is open source - that they are free to
modify and redistribute it. The actual license only matters at the point
where you want to do that.
