Subject Re: SGA or ICLA?
Date Wed, 14 Sep 2016 23:29:30 GMT
Hi Taylor,

My advice is to simply get ICLAs for all past, present, and future contributors to the project.
That will cover Apache’s requirements.

If you have people who for whatever reason won’t sign the ICLA, perhaps you can bring their
concerns back here.
