         It may take some time to track down all contributors. It is not necessary to 
         have paperwork on file for all contributions before the code is imported.

-        Paperwork needs to be submitted to Apache granting rights to use the
-        code. When code comes from existing close corporate sources,
-        then a SGA or a CCLA is typically used. When code comes from existing
-        projects consisting of individual contributions then each contributor
-        needs to be tracked down and asked to sign either a ICLA (if they 
-        will be coming aboard the podling) or a SGA (if they will not).

+        Paperwork needs to be submitted to Apache that grants a legal license on the code

+        As a rule of thumb, if all the material contributors to the code 
+	are joining the podling as initial contributors, then CLAs (individual or corporate)
+        are all you need. The individuals must submit the 'individual' CLA (ICLA).
+        If there are employers involved who might claim
+        rights in the code, then corporate CLAs (CCLAs) are needed for those employers.

+        If, on the other hand, there are material contributors who are <strong>
+        not</strong> joining the podling as initial contributors, or if there
+        are additional corporate entities who can claim rights in the code,
