believe that some parts should not have been donated.

The code that you donate doesn't have to be ready to release from an
ASF point of view - headers can be fixed once in the Flex svn for
example, and dependencies will have to be checked before making a
release. OpenOffice, for example, had lots of non-compliant
dependencies when it was donated, that's been fixed in the Apache svn
before making the first release.

So I'd say if you are ready to sign the grant, just go ahead. It's
best IMO to use a JIRA issue to track the donation (including digests
of the donated code archives), so that we have a trace of what
happened and how the PPMC handled it.
