The answer is a song called "contracts, lawsuits and lawyers" :). 
 
Or as I like to say it -- everyone is a geek at something. Lawyers are geeks for contracts.
Just as we get jazzed by reading/writing code, they get jazzed by reading/writing contracts.

	There's one slight hiccup in this process that I just wanted to provide
	a heads up for.  My boss feels that he should get approval from the
	board before I sign the apache contributor license agreement though
	he's certain there won't be a problem with it.  The only time frame I
	have is "that shouldn't take long" so it looks like I won't be doing
	any committing for a while.  There's no issues with my actual
	contributions just with the actual signing of a form so I'll stay away
	from using any of my new-found Apache powers until I can happily get
	that form signed.
	
	And if anyone ever works out how a company with just 15 employees winds
	up having this much trouble approving one signature I'd love to hear
	the explanation... :)
	
	Regards,
	
	Adrian Sutton.
