Removing React isn't an option at this point. Any pointers on how we would proceed to get
the Superset IP back from the ASF to Airbnb? Can the PMC to vote on this and the ASF to grant
the software back to Airbnb?

> Recently in https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LEGAL-303, the ASF condoned the use
of RocksDB's PATENT restrictions. As you are aware of, RocksDB backtracked and removed the
clause, which addresses the issue for the ASF projects packaging RocksDB.
> Now the same PATENT clause exists for Facebook's React, and Apache Superset (incubating)
is heavily dependent on React. Much of Superset was built with the assumption of using React,
and the project team and community can't afford removing that dependency.
> What are the implications here? What are the possible outcomes? Is it a possibility that
the ASF grants the IP back to Airbnb at this point if the PPMC votes towards it?
