Hi Daniel,

Are you satisfied with my reply to your email/concerns? Please see if
you haven't:

1. We've confirmation from all/main contributors by number of commits,
code addition and deletion tracked at
2. We've the IP grants and ICLA from the repository owner Sander van
Harmelen which were also acknowledged by secretary@ ASF
3. On concern of IP on 3rd party codebase committed by authors - the
codebase/changes are in the vendor directory which is where most of
the (3rd party) code additions/deletions are seen. The vendor folder
(or vendoring) is not part of the codebase but is included in the
repositories for Go-based projects for build/tooling purposes as a
standard practice (see for more
information). Many Apache Go-based projects include vendoring or a
vendor folder with dependency codebase (for example:, I
think due to vendoring as a standard feature of Go-based projects and
tooling, we can exclude IP concerns on vendoring. Or, if that's not
satisfactory we can import the codebase from tarball (i.e. lose the
git history) excluding the vendor folder and later re-generate the
vendor folder using the "go mod tidy" or "go mod vendor" command post
codebase import or during building.
