Ok, do I need to edit the commit message?

Only some new components are in there, but according to their dev list
they have voted on moving the main repository (that includes this code)
in the next couple of weeks.

Is this necessary if Niklas has a CLA on file?

Actually, I thought originally this was an original contribution, but on
closer inspection I've found that it is also derived from another set of
Ant classes.

So, the question now is what is necessary to clear this up? Is a CLA
from Niklas (and CCLA if necessary) plus modification of the original
commit message to indicate origin sufficient? On reading the IP
clearance document, it appears so.
