Subject Official ASF process for re-writing code?
Date Tue, 31 Jul 2012 20:52:29 GMT
Does anyone know the official ASF stance on what it means to
"re-write" a section of code?

Specifically, I was looking at the F5 code [1] that was found during
license header changes (and is considered a release blocker bug [2]).
The code is actually quite trivial in nature, and I'm wondering what
it would take to correctly write a replacement class file.  My
assumption is that simply re-naming variables wouldn't work (and even
if that was enough, there are only a handful of them in the file).

Guidance from Citrix folks that might have had discussions with ASF
legal on this already, or from the project mentors.

Thanks!
