Subject IP Clearance terms
Date Thu, 12 Jan 2017 05:14:47 GMT
It was pointed out on legal-discuss@ that the IP Clearance terms in
http://incubator.apache.org/ip-clearance/ip-clearance-template.html are
odd. Namely the two items:

-----------
* Check and make sure that for all items included with the distribution
that is not under the Apache license, we have the right to combine with
Apache-licensed code and redistribute.

* Check and make sure that all items depended upon by the project is
covered by one or more of the following approved licenses: Apache, BSD,
Artistic, MIT/X, MIT/W3C, MPL 1.1, or something with essentially the same
terms.
------------

It's odd to call out the licenses specifically (with MPL 1.1 seeming a
little odd-one-out), and the two lines are (in spirit) saying the same
thing.

What do folk think to replacing both with:

 * Check and make sure that all items depended upon by the project are
compatible with the license guidance given here:
http://www.apache.org/legal/resolved.html

Thanks,

Hen
