Could you clarify one thing for me, please?

I thought we could take the Oracle code as-is, and check it in, verify
that it is complete and builds, but that we would then be required to
resolve the license issues before could have a release or graduate.
Is that incorrect?  Are we required to resolve these issues before we
even accept the SGA'ed code?  It makes it difficult to collaborate on
resolving these issues if we cannot get the initial code into SVN.
