it's the not the software grant form i was talking about: the incubator has
it's own form which needs to be filled in and committed into subversion
before the incubator pmc will sign off the grant. see
http://incubator.apache.org/ip-clearance/index.html.

the software grant form needs to be filled in by the donator and ack'd by an
officer (ideally jim). the incubator form needs to be filled in by either an
officer or a member and committed into subversion.
