Haiku Distro Guidelines
Haiku distributions must comply to the following set of guidelines. Haiku Inc. reserves the right to change these guidelines in the future.
Naming, Trademarks, and Logo
- The trademark "Haiku" may not be used in your distribution's name. Choose a distinctive name in order to avoid potential confusion with the official Haiku distribution.
- You are not allowed to use the official Haiku trademarks or logo.
- You may use the official Haiku icons and artwork.
Distributions that comply to the following compatibility guidelines are allowed to use the "Haiku Compatible" logo which will become available when we release our base distribution.
- You must not change or extend the API of the Haiku system libraries in any way.
- You should not change, move, or rename any of the files and folders that are part of the base distribution's "system" folder without good reason. Use the "common" folder for customizations whenever possible.
- Provide a version of AboutSystem that identifies your distribution and contains a disclaimer as described in this document.
- Use the same GCC version as the official distribution (X86 GCC 2.95.3 Hybrid with GCC 4.x alternative GCC libraries) and run the "configure" script with the parameter "--distro-compatibility=compatible".
Please include the following disclaimers in a conspicuous place in your website, your AboutSystem version, and the documentation of your distribution:
