If I hear you correctly, the ip-clearance directory is *NOT* the  
right location for the sanselan ip clearance. The sanselan ip- 
clearance document should be removed to the normal incubator status  

And the ip-clearance index.html documentation should refer incubating  
projects to the STATUS process.

If this is correct, I'll try to update the ip-clearance documentation.
