No, I’m not reading the page the same way that you are. To be clear the two lines about
SGA/CCLA and Copyright changes are separate, not simultaneous.

Here are the real steps.

(1) Submit SGA/CCLA to secretary@
(2) Do IP Clearance with Incubator.
(3) Arrange with Infra and/or project moving / checking in the code.
(4) Update Copyrights - if needed. Always best if it’s someone from the contributor.

If you want to suggest updating the language or the recording tables then please provide it
for discussion.
