Sorry if I'm missing something, but it sounds like Justin found these
files in the zip referenced by the Grant.  If these files are dependencies
(not owned by the signers of the grant, no other paperwork authorizing the
grant signers to donate on behalf of the owners, and no intention for the
"home" for future development of these files to be at the ASF), then these
files should not be in the grant.  For sure, Jquery files should never be
in an grant to the ASF (unless the Jquery project decided to donate Jquery
to the ASF).

If there is a lot, you might want to re-do the Exhibit A (new zip and MD5
and update the grant document).  If it is a few, you might want to check
with legal-discuss or get advice from more senior people on this list, but
I would just explicitly list those few files in an email on this list
and/or your dev list so there is permanent record that you are making an
unofficial addendum to the grant and keep on going.

Of course, I could be wrong...
