Did the Zipkin project file an SGA? If no, the contribution is all ICLA based and you are

If yes, then AFAIK Justin is correct, but there may be other edge cases.

was licensed to the ASF under an CLA. Is this actually the case?

Not every TLP may follow policy to the letter. Issues may have been missed in the past. A
TLP may not have gone through the Incubator. You are free to examine the history of every
project’s NOTICE file. If you do not accept the collective advice here and wish a ruling
then you can ask the legal affairs committee at by filing a LEGAL
JIRA. But wait a bit to see. People who would answer there are as likely to answer here.
