1. CCLA is never used instead of an SGA, they serve different purposes. The SGA is for a body
of work that pre-exists entry into the foundation. The CCLA is an optional document that says
future work by named individuals can be contributed.

2. Yes (although secretary tries his best to CC the appropriate people on his replies)

3. Yes

4. Pass - so I'll repeat the question for others - The incubator drop area [3] doesn't seem
to exist. Where should I commit the tarball once everything else is in order?

Subject: IP Clearance Questions

I'm working on filling out the necessary IP Clearance paperwork for code donation and have
a few questions (forgive me if they are stupid, this is my first time through the process):

Based on the IP clearance template documentation [1]:

1. When should a CCLA be used as opposed to a grant [2]?
2. How do I verify that a grant or ccla has been acknowledged by the ASF Secretary? Poll the
grants.txt/cclas.txt files for changes?
3. I assume I don't commit anything until the grant/ccla has been acknowledged. Is this correct?
4. The incubator drop area [3] doesn't seem to exist. Where should I commit the tarball once
everything else is in order?

Thanks in advance,

-Taylor
