Isn't it possible that the ASF mailing lists and policies stay the way they 
are, and that each of the Harmony contributors provide a LGPL license 
separately for all code/patches provided (in advance or each post) for the 
GPL peeps to be able to use the material and output of such discussions ??

Possible is also that JIRA is equipped to reject all submissions that doesn't 
contain both license notices.

Sounds like a lot more straight forward process to me, than going via another 
license, with potential legal hassle down the line.
