> Reviewing the software grant [1] provided with the first NetBeans code donation, my understanding
is that not all files found in that zip are donated.
> The grant indicates that the contents of that file [2] ("Code File") are donated "excluding
any third-party and separately licensed material contained within the Code File". 
> I don't think we can consider that code ready to release as is, due to the uncertainty
that this creates w.r.t to which files are donated and which are not.
> The zip archive contains about 45'000 files.
> I see the following options:
> a) Review all files and include only those which are not "third-party and separately
licensed material". How such files are identified needs to be defined and documented, either
in scripts under version control or as a set of rules. The review process must be documented
and traceable, so that we can go back to it if problems are found in the future.
> b) Get an updated grant which does not mention such exclusions.
> If someone sees other options please discuss here or on the NetBeans dev list, referencing
this ticket.
> [1] in svn under private/documents/grants/oracle-america-netbeans.pdf , ASF members have
access
> [2] under http://bits.netbeans.org/download/apache-donation/  - SHA256(ApacheNetBeansDonation1.zip)=
