The ICLA is for the ASF - so you don't have to sign a new one if you already have submitted
one.

I have checked a file, but haven't found your name (Jaikiran) nor your email adress.
So I think best would be sending a new one.

I'll try to have a look.

That's a good starting point. ;)

Fine.
Maybe it would be a good start to cut a release with the current code base.
That would show possible problems with the release process and it's a prerequisite for later
releases.

+1
I don't know any automatisation of this kind. Someone else? 
Something where we could copy that?
