The point to make clear here, and where folks are coming from, is that
we will require an ICLA (individual committer license agreement) to be
signed by all people who have provided any significant code to the
codebase (beyond a couple of lines of code). We will need to identify
all of these codebases, and then systematically contact each of these
people asking them to sign and fax or email the document. Depending upon
the nature of the contributors/codebase, this can be quite a bit of

However, I've been through the process before, and it is achievable.

I agree that the issue that you were referring to was something
different, however I hope this at least explains where people are coming
from with reference to IP clearance.
