Thanks for the answer. It is not clear for me how the standard way would
have precluded the code being outside. IMO the standard way is to
communicate / discuss by mailing list,  developed code outside and accept
it as patch. Then the student could have earned enough karma to be accepted
as committer. But maybe I am missing something?
This is also how we structured the GSOC project and as result the code is
written outside the foundation.

The questions we are now struggling with are: to accept the donation do we
need an IP clearance?, if yes is a code grant needed? and if yes again who
should sign this grant ?

Greetings,
Pepijn
