Subject [PROPOSAL] 3 month deadline on CLA item
Date Tue, 02 Aug 2011 04:48:54 GMT
As can be seen elsewhere, I'm on a self-given mission to clean up the
history of podlings by getting them to sign off on 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 view this as the first item that a podling should be dealing with,
along with setting up the committers and getting that first codebase
in. By comparison, a website is a nice to have and community is just

Proposal time.

In parallel to cleaning up history, I'd like to stop the rot going
forward. I'd like to propose that each new podling has 3 months (or
another calendar length if that feels too short/too long) to get the
checklist item signed off. I'm partial to 3 months as we would make
them report monthly until they have the item signed off, perhaps with
6 months as a 'do we retire the podling?' checkpoint.
