Subject Re: [Discuss] Graduate Apache SINGA (incubating) as a TLP
Date Tue, 03 Sep 2019 20:51:02 GMT
If I understand correctly, anytime software is brought into Apache as part
of the incubating process there must be documentation from the previous
owner of that software stating that they are donating it to Apache.
Without that Apache's ownership of the code is not clear.  Justin, Dave,
others, please correct me if this understanding is wrong.

And clearly there was code imported into Apache when Singa entered the
incubator, since an existing github link (now defunct) is referenced in
Singa's incubator proposal[1].

So I don't believe that an affirmation from PPMC that no docs are necessary
is sufficient.  I believe we need a code grant from whoever owned that code


1. see
the section on initial source.
