Even if that history contains the previous GPL licensed version of the  
code base?

So IIUC one prerequesite to getting the code into the Apache  
repository is having CLAs on file for all contributors? How do we know  
what the status is in that respect?

Other than that, is any action needed with respect to the following  
external code included with the CouchDB source:

  * SpiderMonkey: dual-licensed MPL/GPL
  * couch_inets: Erlang Public License (
  * jQuery: dual-licensed MIT/GPL
  * json.js: "public domain" (we'll probably switch to json2.js, but  
that's also public domain)

Then there's the javascript shell (shell.js and shell.html) which I  
*think* is based on external code, but it's not clear where exactly it  
comes from. Maybe Damien or Jan remember? Anyway, I think if there are  
problems with this we should simply drop it, and point people to
