Subject [jira] [Commented] (LEGAL-93) Contributions from the US Federal Goverment
Date Tue, 12 Jul 2011 22:46:59 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LEGAL-93?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13064213#comment-13064213

Doug Cutting commented on LEGAL-93:
-----------------------------------

I have not seen a sample file.  I think the notice may not yet be fixed.

I think they'd like attribution, e.g., something for our NOTICE file.

What might we hope to see in the file headers in such a case?

> Some folks who work for the US federal government want to contribute a codebase to Apache,
through the Incubator.  The US government is not permitted to claim copyright over works it
creates.  The Incubator requires a CCLA or Software Grant for codebases brought to Apache.
 Both of these forms require that the author grant a copyright license to Apache, but I don't
see how this is possible when the author is the US Government, which does not hold copyright.
 What's our process in this case?
> Similarly, how can an employee of the US Federal Government file an ICLA, since that
also requires a grant of copyright license?
