Subject Re: Callback CCLA questions
Date Thu, 15 Dec 2011 00:58:16 GMT
Many companies (cough, eg. Rim) include in their employment contract that all work done by
an employee, unless specifically excluded, is owned by the company.  In those scenarios, the
individual usually can't sign an ICLA as it is not applicable.  This is often a point of contention
in many open source projects.  It would be good to clarify the Apache stance, as for example,
Gord and I have NOT signed/submitted ICLA's.

Pretty sure it's a YES - just like us, we had to submit both.

There was a link floating around somewhere earlier... Check the mailing
list archives?
