Subject Re: [VOTE] Internal Incubator
Date Tue, 01 Nov 2011 10:48:42 GMT
Bernd has a good point.

Actually the underlying problem is that we (ASF) introduced Apache-Extras but the code over
there has no implicit IP grant. This can also even be GPLed code... 
Whereas otoh for contributing to a MyFaces sandbox project you need to be an ASF committer
already.

Usually getting code contributions of a medium sized quantity over into an ASF project doesn't
always need an incubation. This can also just be done by creating a Jira issue and attaching
all the code as patch. I've done this for the openjpa-maven-plugin donation to OpenJPA that
way [1].
Of course all contributors need an iCLA on file.

LieGrue,
strub
