That's a little better and keeps some problems at bay, but introduces
others (as you're experiencing now, diverging codebases).
At the end of the day, VP Legal is the one that has to be satisfied.
This is pretty far from what the norm is, and is being proposed by a
podling, so I'd expect some skepticism. Other podlings, have proposed
similar workflows (albeit with extra problems.) and were not allowed
to retain that procedure.
