Subject Druid IP clearance questions
Date Tue, 29 May 2018 23:59:15 GMT
Hi all,

I'm a member of the PPMC for the Druid incubator project. I'm looking into
getting our sources migrated to ASF repos, and I had some questions
regarding the Copyright section in the incubation work items.

1.) For the first item under Copyright:

> "Check and make sure that the papers that transfer rights to the ASF been
received. It is only necessary to transfer rights for the package, the core
code, and any new code produced by the project."

Is the PPMC responsible for making these checks? If so, what specific
checks need to be made?

The SGA has been submitted for Druid, but I don't think the project has
gotten IP clearance yet based on the "Licensing" section in the roster page

When would we be legally clear to start migrating the sources?

2.) For the second item under Copyright:

> "Check and make sure that the files that have been donated have been
updated to reflect the new ASF copyright."

Is it okay to update the licensing headers in the source after the repo

Based on this thread (,
the answer seems to be yes, but I wanted to double-check.
