Subject Re: How to handle exclusions in a software grant?
Date Mon, 04 Sep 2017 15:13:17 GMT
Agreed that the grant in question is missing a proper Exhibit A.  But
perhaps their intention with Exhibit A was to list what was excluded,
rather than what was included?

Considering that the committers in question had CLAs on file, I would be
surprised if 3rd Party Code were brought in.
