Subject Re: IP clearance and copyright transfer
Date Wed, 18 Feb 2009 18:10:11 GMT
Hi Craig,

These two sentences in that section are what threw me off:

"Check and make sure that the papers that transfer rights to the ASF been 
received. It is only necessary to transfer rights for the package, the 
core code, and any new code produced by the project."

"Check and make sure that the files that have been donated have been 
updated to reflect the new ASF copyright."

It'll be great to clean up that wording to say that what's required is a 
license and not "new ASF copyright".

Thanks!

Sanjiva.
