Subject Re: Champion needed for new workflow project proposal
Date Mon, 02 Mar 2009 16:01:49 GMT
Hi Sasa,

I'm following apache.incubator not very closely but looking at
"" you need
a CLA for all contributions (and probable patches). And this seems
difficult for a mature project where many people contributed stuff under
LGPL - but a lot of folks here are more fluent with the intellectual
property legalese.
