With my Board Director hat on:

I believe that it is a bug that the current ICLA gives the ASF enough 
power to relicense something without acknowledging who donated it to us.

I would be in favor of changing the ICLA more than to sign an ad-hoc 
statement like the one you propose.

With my Harmony hat on: I would like this to move as fast as we can and 
I don't know which one of the options is faster.

Cliff, are you watching this? any comment?
