All -

Just to clarify - as far as I know, Storm code is used only at two places -
for ensuring API compatibility (a thin wrapper on the underlying Heron API)
and for implementation of Window functions (with modifications). Rest of
the code were original contributions from people at
Twitter/Streamlio/Microsoft/Google/Fitbit/Wanda Group and other companies.

When a new contributor contributes code, he/she has to accept an CLA
available at
