Subject [jira] [Commented] (LEGAL-232) What size contribution warrants a Software Grant?
Date Thu, 18 Feb 2016 15:18:18 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LEGAL-232?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=15152430#comment-15152430

Jim Jagielski commented on LEGAL-232:
-------------------------------------

There are no hard and fast rules. In general if there is a *donation* of code, then a software
grant is preferred; if the person donating the code has an iCLA on file, and the entire donation
is theirs, then a grant is not required, since it is covered under their iCLA.

Sometimes the ASF prefers a belts-and-braces solution, so for something "this large", a software
grant can be asked for, but the inclusion does not require it.

> The Usergrid project has received a GitHub pull-request for a new component that is approximately
300 new files from a developer who has an ICLA on file.
> This brings up two questions:
> 1. Are there any guidelines for knowing when a Software Grant is required?
> 2. Can we accept this contribution or do we need to fill out and sign a Software Grant
first?
> The Pull Request (PR) can be seen here:
> https://github.com/apache/usergrid/pull/481
