+1, with Bertrand's addition.  The UIMA podling follows this policy, not 
because we have issues with third-party contributions but to keep our IP 
squeaky clean.

[We have the additional constraint that we don't commit anything (other 
than trivial changes) by people who do not have an ICLA on file.  It has 
been suggested that this sets the bar very high for potential 
contributors, but from our (limited) experience so far, this does not 
seem to be the case.]
