I see, but these are just background hosting services right? Mostly for multimedia distros with large ISO files. But there is no 'linuxaudio.org marketing' around it, nor does they pretend it is released by linuxaudio.org, nor is it released on the github page of linuxaudio.

So stating that generic rule about hosting software is difficult you say.

The core of the problem is clear though I think and we agree that they can't pretend they are linuxaudio.org or are releasing as it was a original linuxaudio.org release.

I also think it's fair to conclude that they don't need any hosting services from linuxaudio.org. They've their own websites which they can use. It's also no problem to start a own github/gitlab project.

So it's still fair to decide that they should remove all relation to linuxaudio.org, including the github page (within a reasonable timespan, like two weeks).

Of course, a generic solution/ rule would be good so we don't have this issue with other projects in the future again.

Maybe others have ideas for such a generic rule?
