Subject Re: CCLA executed (Follow-Up)
Date Thu, 01 Jan 2015 13:04:34 GMT

I write as one of the mentors of the NiFi project.

In the normal course of events, people who offer contributions will be
voted in as committers. It is typical for projects to start with a
smaller core group and grow; there is no Apache policy that requires
that all historical authors be listed as initial committers, only that
the Foundation receive a legally adequate license grant to the code.
In this case, the Government represented that it has comprehensive
rights to grant the license. It is also typical for people who plan to
participate in the project to submit ICLA or CCLA documents to smooth
their eventual inclusion. The process of growing the community is a
very important part of the incubation process, so, in fact, it's very
helpful for the community to begin with a bit of a backlog of folks
who are all fired up to contribute and get added.

Best Regards,
Benson Margulies
