Subject Re: Flex IP Clearance
Date Mon, 31 Mar 2014 16:23:34 GMT
Here is the original thread --
https://mail-archives.apache.org/mod_mbox/www-legal-discuss/201403.mbox/%3CCF565477.1DF5E%25aharui%40adobe.com%3E

Is there a reason not to follow the IP Clearance process, other than the
code is currently in svn or been released?

I'd suggest you follow the IP Clearance process. If the process turns up
any issues, you'll need to address them...
