Subject Re: Amber CLA status [Was: Old projects with incomplete copyright diligence]
Date Thu, 23 Aug 2012 07:18:24 GMT
Sounds like you should sign off on the first item in the Copyright
section of http://incubator.apache.org/projects/amber.html as "n/a".
No code was relicensed to the ASF when Amber was created. Instead it
was a fork of Uni of Newcastle code and that copyright remains on the
code.
