not a problem

the first job is to complete the software grant. the signature on the
grant needs to match the artifact that will be initially dropped into
subversion (so that a copy exists). this is sent by the person making
the grant to the apache secretary (through one of the approved means).

the second job is to complete the IP clearance form so that a public
record exists of the grant. usually, this will usually be done by the
chair of the project (or occasionally, by a member).

however, since this is the incubator the chair shouldn't really take
the lead. someone in the podling needs to complete the IP clearance
form and create an incubator JIRA containing it then ask a member to
submit it.
