Subject Licensing question for new incubator project
Date Thu, 10 Oct 2013 21:50:19 GMT

I'm the author of an open source project which project grew out of an
ASF-mentored Google Summer of Code project three years ago. This project
has been in constant development ever since, and has grown into a mature
code-base, used in production in several places. I am interested in
contributing this project back to ASF, and it seems like the way to do that
is by submitting it as an incubator project.

I have a question regarding licensing. I developed part of this project
during my current employment, and my employer gave me permission to publish
my work under an Apache 2 license on Github. I believe they will be
supportive of my request to submit the project to ASF. However, I will be
changing my employment soon (they are aware of this), and so I would like
to resolve all the IP issues with them now, while I am still at the
company. I would therefore like to verify that, in order to contribute the
project to ASF, they will be required to sign a Corporate CLA, and a
Software Grant Agreement.

I would also like to check if there is any issue with having them sign
these documents early in the process, before I submit the Incubator

Is there anything else I should be aware of at this stage?

Thanks for your attention, and I look forward to receiving your comments.
