Incubating OFBiz = present contribution.

For former contributors, the purpose of the iCLA is to cover this
current contribution to the Incubator.  While the contribution may be
in the past as far as OFBiz is concerned, it's in the present as far
as the ASF is concerned.  In other words, the contributor is
re-contributing the code as part of the incubation grant.
