Subject Re: How do I go about podling I.P. clearance for the initial codebase?
Date Mon, 13 May 2019 20:31:54 GMT
Hi Kenneth,

I’m sorry about the state of documentation.

Let’s separate the ICLA requirement from the SGA question.

(1) Each initial committer / PPMC member needs to have an ICLA on file with secretary@apache
before their account is created. The mentors are responsible for tracking this and making
sure that the podling roster is up to date.

(2) SGAs are typically needed when the project code is donated by a company, these go to secretary@.
A CCLA might substitute for that, but that is up to legal-discuss@apache. Once the IP is cleared
then Infra will work with the PPMC to transfer repositories to the Apache repositories on
GitBox and GitHub.

(3) Once the repositories are moved then further steps of Copyright and License header change
can be done. These changes should be made by a PPMC member from the company making the donation.

I’m flagging this thread in order to look into documentation improvements. Patches are welcome
