I'll try to help, but with the standard disclaimer that IANAL, so you
need to be comfortable with the terms and conditions and grants that you
are signing no matter what I tell you!

Ok, thanks.  The list of designated employees on this form is an
internal matter for you (essentially listing people who can contribute
assets on behalf of the corporation).

You really only need one checklist per bulk contribution (which may be a
set of packages); but no harm, just more paperwork!

The Software Grant and checklist cover the bulk contribution, so ICLA's
should be completed for people who will be making an ongoing
contribution to the code.  The ICLA works for contributors, the
foundation, and code consumers to define the terms under which
contributions are made to the project.

The bulk contribution checklist ensures that incoming code, created
outside the day-to-day development of the project, has a traceable and
acceptable IP provenance.  If you can provide an ACQ for each of the
original authors(*) and each ongoing contributor(+) that would be ideal.

(*)otherwise see the bulk contribution checklist for details
(+)otherwise they are probably out of luck, see the ACQ for details

To date these forms have been sent directly to Geir.  I won't put his
fax number out on the list  -- I'll let him send it to you directly.
