Subject Re: License/Notice/Disclaimer file location in tree and modifcations of License headers in contributed files
Date Fri, 10 Aug 2012 18:32:31 GMT
Hi Kevan,

in Jira there is a special checkbox when you attach files "Grant rights of
files to the ASF". From what I understood that is sufficient if the author
of the code contributes to the ASF.

However as our mentors on the dev list have clarified it is not.
I will contact OCAD and ask them if they can file an CCLA.

Thanks!
Sebastian
