Agreed, considering the contributor list on the code base is small (5
contributors) with the bulk of it from you, it shouldn't be an issue.
You'll want to check w/ your eventual mentors

- Contributors/committers have ICLAs.
- SGA passing ownership to the ASF
- A thorough review of the code base validating things like headers, proper
ownership are all transferred.

It's one of the easier things to do, but typically neglected.
