 From time to time, an external codebase is brought into the ASF that is 
not a separate incubating project but still represents a substantial 
contribution that was not developed within the ASF's source control 
system and on our public mailing lists.

Not to look a gift-horse in the mouth (it is great work), but I don't 
see these examples as "substantial". I haven't found guidelines yet that 
better clarify the definition of "substantial".
