Thinking on this further, I may have poorly described this.

A code donation has been offered to Jakarta (Commons). From what I
understand, this has to go via the Incubator to ensure it is above
board etc as it is from a company and not ASF committers, but does it
actually have to become an incubated project, or do we just need to
get the legal agreements on file and then move along?

If so, what legal bits and how? Does their previous donation cover
future donations?
