Hi Justin!

First, thanks for the review!

The question got asked as well while we started incubation. 

I'll try to quickly sum up the outcome:
No, we didn't get an official grant, but the RI is ALv2 and we actively asked the IBM devs/managers
and they are perfectly fine with it. They even give feedback on JIRA and contributed patches
later on. 

We are actively working together so to say.
But by not having a grant we cannot change the copyright for those files.

We have the (c) ASF header for stuff we wrote our own, and the (c) IBM header for stuff IBM
wrote.Given this I think the header is fine, isn't?

Business Machines Corp. Is this correct? If so what ASv2 licensed software did they come from
or were they part of a software grant?
