Kicked off a discussion about the future of Apache Ivy at the Ant dev mailing list.

Received a recruiter message last week that stood out from the others:

I'm getting in contact on behalf of X, the creators of Apache Y


Even if I was looking for a new job I'd stop reading at that point. The creators of Apache Y are the project's contributors, not X. X may be the inventor but in my conrete combination of X and Y that wouldn't be true, either. X may employ some of the contributors, but it does not create Apache Y.

If you allow recruiters to use such a phrase you first demonstrate you don't understand how the ASF works and second are obviously willing to lie. Why would I want to work for an employer who lies to me?
