It occurs to me that the ASF, in enforcing open-source licensing,
becomes a source of free legal advice to the open-source community,
whether it intends to or not...

1. Contribute a body of code to ASF.

2. "Is it legal for us to accept this?  Better run it past legal@."

3. Use acceptance of the contribution as certification that it can be
used by the contributor.

Just sayin'.  Not sure if this is a good thing or a bad thing.
