There are a number of ways in which we can handle this, but the first
step is to get a list of all those who have had direct commit access
to Open For Business.  The next list you'll want are contributors
whose code is in Open For Business but who never had commit rights. 
As Justin explain, this can be the most difficult part, but it's not
only necessary, it's worth it because it ensures the code is free and
clear to be used properly.

I'll help with this item in any way I can.

And no, we don't need ip-clearance files, we need CLAs.
