BeOS & Derivatives Every now and then, the Haiku mailing lists explode with emails about something called the distribution guidelines. The Haiku guys set up a set of guidelines with regards to use of the Haiku trademarks and logos; the "Haiku" name may not be used in the distribution's name, official trademarks and logos must be excluded, but the Haiku icons and artwork may be used. In addition to these cosmetic and trademark issues, the guidelines explain what is needed in order to receive the official "Haiku compatible" logo.

Umm, you sound like an Apple commercial.
This kind of totalitarian thinking doesn'n fly in the the land of free software.
If code is licensed under an open source license then anybody can freely use and change it, anytime.

No real relation between the Apple full control and making distros of an OS not even in Alpha version. That's also just my opinion that such a small comunity should all work on the same branch before R1.
After R1, that's different... i must confess that on this point (distros / packages / guidelines / prematurate), i'm 100% agree with Koki.
