I struggle with what that really means. Code is technically developed in 
IDEs on people's machines, not on mailing lists.

If I create a new file for an ASF project it's developed on my machine 
and subsequently committed to the project or posted as a patch. So for 
sometime the new file was outside the ASF SVN repository and not visible 
on a public mailing list.

What really makes something developed "inside" the ASF?
   - intention to contribute to a project?
   - JIRA entry created before the file is created?
   - discussion in mailing list before the file is created?
   - creating the file in a local SVN copy from the ASF SVN?
