Mobile mail..  sorry for brevity...

Doesn't the ICLA Graham has previously filed with the ASF already compel him to make no contribution
unless those conditions are met?

After a decade is there any reason to believe he would act in contradiction to his sworn ICLA?

Sorry if you find this fatigueing or my humor irritating.  Laughing at ourselves can be healthy
medicine and inspiring to come to more sensible and less silly written policy.  I'm quite
finished being angry or irritated over such issues :)

- I have a signed ICLA on file.
- I am a PMC member.
- The contribution was submitted to the ASF bugzilla by the BBC directly (ie not someone in
their personal capacity), which forces account holders to agree to the following condition:
"Certify that any object code, source code, patch, documentation, etc. that you may supply
to an Apache project can be redistributed under the same license terms and conditions as the
project itself."
- The contribution was made after a BBC-internal process was followed to sign off and clear
the code for donation.

Can someone provide for me any concrete reason to suspect that the conditions in 3 and 4 might
not have been met?
