> I'm managing the DMAP-11 donation for the DeviceMap podling, see also http://incubator.staging.apache.org/ip-clearance/devicemap-openddr.html
> The donated code is licensed under GPL + LGPL.
> The grant [1] says that we're granted a non-exclusive, worldwide, royalty-free, irrevocable
copyright license to sublicense the code, among other things - my legalese skills are too
poor to judge if this means we can change the license on that incoming code ourselves, or
if we need an additional statement from the code owner to do that.
