Subject Re: Fwd: [DISCUSS] Allow any jira user to assign HIVE bugs to them self
Date Mon, 04 May 2015 21:33:14 GMT
As Lefty noted, we don't require anyone being made a jira contributor
or uploading a patch to have ICLA on file. Apache does not require
that, though that is encouraged.
So allowing any user to be a contributor without asking for permission
does not change things with respect to ICLA.

Looks like people are on board with this. I will change the settings
in another day as long as there are no objections.
