Subject IP Clearance for Apache Amber
Date Thu, 12 Apr 2012 12:46:41 GMT

I'd need some advice regarding some issue we have with Apache Amber.
The project has been on incubator fro a while and we would like to try to graduate.
Problem is we have been stuck with a legal issue.
The problem is more or less the follow (this is the short version):

An OAuth 2.0 project, LeeLoo, was being developed by Newcastle Uni.  We invited them to join
the Amber project with their code.
That code was committed to the repo before a grant was provided by Newcastle Uni, whose copyright
is on the code.

In order to better explain the overall situation in details I have dug a bit in the mailing
list in order to provide a timeline of what has been happening.

10/10 First mention of Leeloo [0]
11/10 Introduction of Leeloo to Amber list [1]
11/10 Moving Leeloo code to Apache repository [2]
12/10 Maciej/Lukasz signed ICLA [3]
12/10 IP clearance for Leeloo contribution [4]
12/10 AMBER-11/AMBER-12 Leelo donation
07/11 IP clearance and first release [5]
09/11 Waiting from reply from the University [6]
01/12 ASF license and copyrights [7]

Now IANAL and I am kind of new in Apache but as long as I understand we are  stuck at the
IP clearance:  http://incubator.apache.org/ip-clearance/amber-leeloo.htm<http://incubator.apache.org/ip-clearance/amber-leeloo.html>l

Am I correct? Is there any other thing we can do rather then rewrite the code from scratch

Thanks in Advance
