Subject RE: Result was : Re: [Vote] Accept Kai Sheng contribution (Haox) as a sub-project

Hi Emmanuel,

Sounds great! My comments inline. Please confirm if I need to finish cleanup & clearance
first or not before importing the source. Thanks.

I would suggest a slightly different plan :

- first of all, attach the sources to a JIRA (you can use the Kerberos JIRA for that). You
can perfectly point to the git hub repo, it's easier. We just need a trace.
[Kai] It's fine. I can do it now.

- you also have to grant the code to the ASF, which means you need to fill a ICLA (
and get your compnay fill a CCLA (
[Kai] I have signed a ICLA (for Hadoop contribution). For my company, as our organization
in the company (Intel) has already adopted the Apache open source working model so generally
when anyone of us in the organization would work on an Apache project, it should be fine.
So I guess CCLA step can also be saved (it's probably already done), as we (Intel) has already
so many contributions in Apache particularly in Hadoop space.

- once done, we can incoprorate the code base
[Kai] Should I finish the cleanup & clearance first before the incorporation?

- we need for that to ask for a git repo (that will take more or less one week)
[Kai] The sooner the better, thanks!

Once the git repo created, we can just import the whole history of your project, or just the
latest revision : it's really up to you.
[Kai] When it's appropriate to import, I will import the latest revision. The history may
look messy.

Kerberos might sound logical, there might be legal issues regarding using Kerberos in the
name of both the sub project and the product. Kerberos is the product of the organisation
with the same name (<>).
