Subject Re: seeking clarification wrt ip-clearance processes

What the incubator guides currently say about importing code

  implies that the code that's imported has the old license text, and  
it's cleaned up in the incubation process.

For an existing TLP, the guide doesn't apply. But since best practice  
in incubation seems to be to import exactly what was in the external  
repo, I don't see that an existing project should have an issue. I  
would put the imported code into a special part of the TLP's  
repository (e.g. tlp/import next to tlp/trunk) just to make sure it  
isn't accidentally shipped.

Of course, running RAT on the release would catch it but still...
