Subject Absolving the IPMC of IP Clearances
Date Sun, 21 May 2017 21:06:36 GMT
All, Specifically the new VP Legal,

The IPMC has struggled for a while being the gatekeepers for IP Clearance
for the entire foundation.  Several of us over the years have raised
concerns with this process.  It probably made sense when all new code went
through the incubator, but these days much new code goes directly to the
TLPs accepting them.

I'd like to question this practice, and see if there's any additional
guidance on how to handle IP Clearances, is this really an IPMC
responsibility?

John
