Subject Re: Donating freemarker-online as part of the FreeMarker project, how?
Date Wed, 22 Feb 2017 19:12:32 GMT

Sounds like the easiest way to handle this is as you described. 

Get a CCLA from Kenshoo with describing the code
being contributed
Add any current Kenshoo employees 
Get an ICLA from non-Kenshoo folks

Create a git repo for the new content
After we accept the CCLA, generate a pull request and take in the code
Change package names
Change license headers
