Subject Re: [IP CLEARANCE] Apache Ignite - Persistent Store
Date Mon, 22 May 2017 07:05:42 GMT
Originally, the IP Clearance was intended for "block contributions" larger
than suitable for a Jira patch file, and from people outside the community.
For example, it could be code that was made at SourceForge and IP Clearance
was to make sure that the the OK/interest of the authors was recorded (via
ICLAs, IIRC).

In this case, it seems that the author is on the PM, have an ICLA on file,
the work is part of the same commit tree, so I see no reason for the ASF to
doubt that he had the permission from the company to commit/push.


Cheers
Niclas
