Subject [VOTE] Increased process on CLA item
Date Wed, 03 Aug 2011 04:28:08 GMT
[By which I mean the following checklist item:

"Check and make sure that the papers that transfer rights to the ASF
been received. It is only necessary to transfer rights for the
package, the core code, and any new code produced by the project. " ]

I'm proposing that the following is added to the process for a new podling:

1) The podling are to list the individuals/entities who need to grant
rights for any existing software moving to the ASF. These may be
either ICLAs or Software Grants. [Ideally this would be listed, or at
least described, in the proposals].

2) Podlings are expected to have completed this item after 3 months of
reporting within the Incubator. It's understood that this may not be
the case, in which case they will continue to report monthly until the
item is complete (explaining the current status in their report).


3) Existing podlings are grandfathered in until the end of the year,
at which point they will have to start reporting monthly if they have
not completed the item.

[ These are guidelines and the Incubator PMC would adjust to
individual situations as they see fit ]
