I disagree that it should just be about ip clearance. If the Commons PMC has a history with
the committers that come with the code then they surely can judge whether those people would
be good members of the community. If they don't have any track record to go on then it is
unreasonable to expect them to immediately accept them. The Commons PMC doesn't even do that
for Members, except to grant them commit rights to the sandbox. However, IMO it would not
be unreasonable to allow the code into the sandbox and give them only commit rights to their
component. However, I'm not on the Commons PMC so my opinion is just that.
