I expect contributors to understand their legal situation and represent 
it clearly and openly to the community.  There is no way I or anyone 
else here can figure out what kind of NDA you are under.

If you are comfortable that the NDA you signed could not have any 
bearing on the code you want to contribute, because of the fact that the 
area in which you contribute didn't exist at the time of the NDA and 
therefore couldn't be covered, than that seems like a reasonable 
explanation to me and there should be no problem.
