Subject Re: IP Clearance Questions
Date Wed, 08 Apr 2015 13:31:19 GMT
I would like to bring this question up again. BLOCKER.

The http://incubator.apache.org/ip-clearance/ip-clearance-template.html
document states that

<quote>
*Note:* the grant form *must* be acknowledged before continuing. If the
source is referenced by checksum in the grant, commit the canonical tarball
for the donated code into the incubator drop area
(/repos/asf/incubator/donations) together with a checksum and a detached
signature. This will ensure that apache has a legal record of the grant.
</quote>

which means that no one can complete this, without the "drop area", unless
there is a new process and this document is out of date.


Cheers
Niclas
