Yea; since all of your significant contributors (excluding simple
maintenance fixes and things that can't be copyrighted, such as data
or facts) assigned license as GPL, they need to relicense their work
as Apache License, sign a grant for their contributions or just file
an iclas and offer their patch(es) to this list.

How many are we talking about (in the significant category)?  The
easiest way probably depends on how many people, how easy they are
to contact, etc.

I'd prefer that we simply sponsor this effort under the httpd PMC here
at our project.

We have to file an IP code clearance through the Incubator, but that's
relatively simple (and a good part is finished already now that the
appropriate paperwork is filed with the secretary).

Does anyone feel that the addition of mod_fcgid should be driven through
the incubator?  Speaking first hand, it didn't resolve the shortcomings
of lack of community behind mod_aspdotnet, and didn't really give mod_ftp
the visibility it needed (and attracted once it graduated).  So for most
existing modules, I don't think it solves many of the problems we might
or might not face here at httpd.
