The copyright section [1] still includes the sentence explaining how
to record a grant [2]. If the copyright is owned by ASF committers and
all contributors are in agreement then AIUI a software grant isn't
required. This does need to be recorded in the IP clearance, though.
Just replace the grant line [2] with your note about developed by ASF
committers under the ASF.

as record in the grants.txt document so that the grant can be easily
