I assume that all the "project committers" (if that group is more than just
you) were employed by AIST and that the copyright for any code they authored
is owned by AIST.

This doesn't have to be dealt with before entry into the Incubator.  All
that's required is a *plan* -- and it seems to me that there's enough of a
plan to get started.

Another detail is that very small contributions may not be copyrightable and
thus may not require relicensing.  Again, that can be dealt with later.

Good luck!
