However it should be OK (and perhaps even encouraged) for the archive
to list in NOTICE or similar that some of the files are not legally
owned by the donating entity, for instance other open source files
that have been used – legally they can’t be part of the IP grant
(unless the donating entity have gained shared copyright after further
modifications - but their upstream license would still apply).


This does not mean the donated archive has to be fully IP cleared
before donation.. of course the opposite could be true – the grant
donates some code, which the podling later chooses not to keep – for
instance by discovering an LGPL-licensed file from outside.


What is not OK is as you suggest, to include files which ARE owned by
the donating entity, but which are somehow not included in the grant.
