When Judah fixes the tag, a zip of the tag will be pulled and he and/or I
will prepare a zip for IP clearance.  Headers, LICENSE, NOTICE will be
added, but these changes do not need to be pushed back to his repo.  The
IP clearance zip will be made available to the incubator folks and it will
document the provenance of every file based on Apache policy.

None of the Adobe donations were cleaned up in public prior to donation.

I think we got the grant faster this way.  I agree that there was some
good general principles about donations in my discussions with Judah, but
he did a good job of summarizing them in his last post on this thread.
I'm just not sure that 800 folks needed to read the details or cared to
read the details of these discussions, and if they started adding their
own questions, there's a chance that it could have become too much work.

If there are folks in the community who want to become more involved in
screening future donations, let me know and we'll see if we can get you
involved in the next donation.

I think it is good enough shape that the incubator will not reject every
file, and what is left will be a solid contribution.
