Subject Re: How do we record the IP grants from previous contributors?

  Further to Mark's recommendation that we just forward the emails 
granting IP to isis-dev.

We already have IP from the 5 committers (Rob, Dan, Kevin, Alexander, 
Dave), via the CCLAs that each have signed.

By my reckoning there are 4 more.

This is 2 of 4: Stephan Eggermont

Hello Robert,

I'd be willing to testify that the contributions I made were my own,
and transfer copyright to ASF. Currently, they can be used under an
ASL2 license.

I welcome the move to Apache incubator.
