I'm not sure I know what an "elephant" is in this context.  And I'm not
quite sure what issues are considered 'i' and 't'.  IMO, it was a good
lesson for our podling to see that we can get delayed by not getting the
LICENSE and NOTICE and other files right, so we had proper expectations set
for when we became a TLP.   And IMO, because IANAL and nobody else in the
podling is either, it was good to have other sets of eyes on the reviews.
