That shouldn't have been in there. The IP clearance has been taken care 
of. It was a Labs project, and everything else has come through from 
people with ICLAs or with the grant option in Jira. The IP clearance was 
marked complete in the clutch before the release. Thorsten, Ross, and I 
all confirmed that we were good before I marked it off. 3rd party 
libraries were checked and we're good there as well. I'm not sure why it 
wasn't removed from the report.

At this point the issue blocking graduation is community size. If it 
were to graduate now as a TLP, the PMC would be rather small, probably 
about 5 people. I seem to recall a discussion that 5 was enough of the 
people were from a variety of places (not all one employer). If it were 
to graduate into another TLP, that becomes less of an issue. However, 
that practice seems to be out of favor now.
