                 Key: LEGAL-85
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LEGAL-85
             Project: Legal Discuss
          Issue Type: Task
            Reporter: Benson Margulies


I've quoted http://apache.org/licenses/#clas below.

It would be helpful if this were to be expanded to give some broad guidelines to define 'a
body of existing software'.

I think that there are three cases, but there might be two:

1. a checkbox on a JIRA, or a patch on a mailing list. No CLA
2. a CLA
3. a grant

I find that I can't explain how to draw the lines, and, in fact, it might be that case 1 is
always supposed to be case 2 --- but I'm sure that many Apache committers aren't checking
for CLAs before committing small patches.


Software Grants
When an individual or corporation decides to donate a body of existing software or documentation
to one of the Apache projects, they need to execute a formal Software Grant Agreement (SGA)
with the ASF. Typically, this is done after negotiating approval with the ASF Incubator or
one of the PMCs, since the ASF will not accept software unless there is a viable community
available to support a collaborative project.
