Deleted this section, thank you

Using the search available here ( http://www.uspto.gov/main/ 
trademarks.htm ) I found nothing which looks infringing. There are a  
number of wombat trademarks around, but the only one related to  
software is marked DEAD. The closest live one is for some folks who  
make keyboards.

All of these have been checked, made sure, and appropriately dated.

Good catch, thank you.

Prior to import it has only been available under the Apache License,  
Version 2.0. As such, everyone not in violation of that license has  
distribution rights.

Huh? There are four code grants, one from each person who has  
contributed code. There are four CLA's, one from each person who has  
contributed code. There is verification of the information I asserted  
in the template. There is also the two spots in the template I missed  
filling in which you caught -- who has distribution rights and the  
name of the project used in grants.txt.

I have checked in the updates to cover these points, but I have not  
redeployed the inubator site, For your convenience I have included  
the diff of the changes below.

Thank You!
