Subject Re: Podlings & IP Clearance
Date Fri, 04 Oct 2019 17:30:11 GMT
IIRC, the main thing that matters is that all incoming code that was developed outside the
ASF gets cleared.  For podlings, there is frequently one big code donation that eventually
gets turned into a release.  The podling gets to put the code in a repo and then clear it.
 I believe that's mainly to help get the community going with the least delay.  Podlings often
do that one release and then graduate to TLP.

But once you have clean code in your repo, before you mix a bunch of other code into it, it
is advised to clear it before mixing that code.  The IP Clearance process is the main way
to do that and the Incubator is the central log of these big donations being cleared.

I don't think Weex had to go through IP Clearance if the mentors felt they could inspect and
clear the code, but it doesn't hurt to ask for more eyes on it.

At least, that's how I remember it from my podling days.  Flex received several donations
before and after graduation.

My 2 cents,

    As a PPMC member of Weex, I didn’t find any documentation about the IP

    if it’s written in the documentation clearly.
    IMO, the problem here is that we don’t have an IP clearance process for
    podllings, so podllings have no other way but follow the standard IP
    process of TLP project.
