[~danielsh]: You're talking about policing the timing of commits, and somehow understanding
whether those were "on company time" or not. As if the Foundation could even know which hours,
what schedule, etc. That is simply infeasible.

Many years back, we shut down a suggested change to the CCLA from a corporate lawyer because
it meant paperwork (and much *less* paperwork than your suggestion). So I'm gonna guess this
idea won't even make it through the door :-)

(not that it is invalid, but merely that the Foundation won't want to take on the burden)

> My employer is looking at how we can contribute to Apache software.
> Our lawyer has assessed the Corporate CLA and Individual CLA (https://www.apache.org/licenses/#clas).
She has provisionally assessed the Corporate CLA as acceptable to our organisation, but raised
a flag about the requirement that employees must also sign an Individual CLA.  Indeed, I note
that the Corporate CLA asks for designated employees to be listed.
> 1. Can the ASF change its position on requiring Individual CLAs from employees in addition
to Corporate CLAs, for contributions that are owned by the organisation?
> 2. Otherwise I _think_ that we might be happier if the employee could sign the Individual
CLA as (for example) 'Jane Pearson as employee of <organisation>' (or possibly 'Jane
Pearson for <organisation>'.  How does this sound?
> Many thanks,
> - Patrick.
