Typically the flow is to vote on your dev list then vote here.  Once that's
done, the vote should be in the bottom votes section of the IP Clearance.
Looking at the related threads on Cassandra lists, I'm not sure why Nate
McCall was selected.  Since you're a member I'd rather see your name
listed, it doesn't need to be the VP of the project and from the content on
the lists you've been doing it.

The only thing that looks a miss is that the chain of custody seems odd.
It appears the PMC created a repo, had someone fork the repo and dump the
code there.  Typically what we look for is a dump from a corporate entity
in the form of a zip (since IP clearance is typically to make some closed
source open source).  Since the two contributors listed are already PMC
members (and I only see content from one such developer) it's very hard to
follow whether or not all of the original authors are listed.  Typically
you would only change the headers once an SGA is filed, but I think all I
see is a CCLA.  Did the CCLA include comments indicating this code was to
be contributed?
