Craig L Russell commented on LEGAL-315:
---------------------------------------

[~sebb@apache.org]
I believe that the ASF position and rationale are in fact explained on the licenses and FAQ
pages.
In future, feel free to reference 
http://www.apache.org/licenses/#clas and 
http://www.apache.org/legal/resolved.html#are-contributors-required-to-sign-a-ccla 
for the ASF position.

> 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.
