I'd like to put this amendment to the IP policy to a vote, but first let's
start with the 7 day discussion period.

"If an API or a particular behaviour of an API which is part of the
Windows(R) operating system is not publicly documented by Microsoft, then
the API or the particular behaviour of the API may only be implemented in
ReactOS if there is documentation of published software which depend on the
API or the particular behaviour of the API, and which is not only
distributed with the Windows(R) operating system. The documentation must be
available in the repository."

I argue that the more ReactOS differ from Windows, the harder it will be to
prove that ReactOS is a derivative work of Windows.
