Subject Re: Proposal for contributing code from GraniteDS

Yes, the ICLA is for you personally to make changes to code.  You will need
this to be allowed to modify the files once they land in Apache SVN.  The
CCLA says that your corporation understands that you are doing this work and
is ok with Apache having license to use your changes.   And since the
copyright owner is GraniteDS, I think you really do need to do the software
grant and someone with the authority to sign legal documents for GraniteDS
will need to sign it.  For example, I cannot sign the software grants for
Adobe, and my manager has to hit up a VP that is two levels above him, and
even that VP checks in an SVP before signing the big grants.  But the CEO
generally isn't involved.
