My point was that the index needed to be updated, not just the content
added.  It would be even better if the index were generated from the set
of content.

But actually, I wasn't paying quite enough attention, because as you

You are referring to:

  This form is not for new projects. This is for projects and PMCs
  that have already been created and are receiving a code donation
  into an existing codebase. Any code that was developed outside of
  the ASF SVN repository and our public mailing lists must be
  processed like this, even if the external developer is already an
  ASF committer.

The wording is awkward.  The key is that the IP Clearance is a short-form
for when a codebase is not going through Incubation, and is being cleared
for immediate use within an existing ASF project.  For a new project, the
Incubation STATUS document should be used.

Key concept: the IP Clearance is supposed to be a subset of the Incubation
STATUS document.
