Subject Re: SGA or ICLA?
Date Thu, 15 Sep 2016 01:49:43 GMT
Thanks for the clarification Craig.

I like the idea of ICLA over SGA for individuals since it sets people up to contribute to
more than one project. With an ICLA on file, it makes it that much easier to add someone as
a committer/PMC Member to any project.
