All code must be expressly licensed by its rightful owner to be
included in the ASF repo.  For code you write yourself, you simply
license it under your filed ICLA.  Anything else needs a software
grant OR a CLA of some sort and the intent that the contribution be
covered under that CLA.

The second sentence above is why a simple handshake agreement from Red
Hat is enough for me--their corporate CLA is already on file.  I lost
sight of that fact momentarily when I sent my last message on this

But back to the idea of code that comes, e.g., from SpringSource, yes,
we must obtain express license to the code itself, particularly when
it would take the form of an entire class.   Depending on a
compatibly-licensed third-party binary is of course no problem

Thanks all for the constructive discussion,
