Subject Re: Updating ip-clearance web site
Date Tue, 08 Aug 2017 03:28:41 GMT
IP Clearance depends a lot on other licensing questions. I'm thinking of adding a few more
FAQ to http://apache.org/foundation/license-faq.html and then I could refer to the FAQ when
discussing IP clearance in the context of what IP means.

In particular, http://apache.org/foundation/license-faq.html#PatentScope and
http://www.apache.org/licenses/#clas and
http://www.apache.org/licenses/#submitting
