Thanks John, a number of things mentioned are soaking in.

Some questions/answers inlineā€¦

There has been discussion (and the jira ticket) on the contribution already, so the dev vote
was (in practice) a formality (more of the ip clearance details than accepting the code).

The links to the this thread and the dev vote are in the doc. It just takes time to update
the website :(

Nate and I were working on it together. 
Still rather I change the name to me?

That's on me. I suggested creating the git repo in advance (using selfserve.a.o)

Then we could not find `/repos/asf/incubator/donations`
Asking around didn't help much either.

So at that point the easiest place to dump it was in a fork.

All authors are listed and correct. Their ICLA cover the work completely, no CCLA is required.
I have double checked this with the authors. It is my understanding, with two PMC with ICLA,
that the SGA is also not needed here. 

I am also aware that the IP Clearance probably isn't needed here. But because this work was
done over a period of time in private, the IP Clearance process kicked off before we saw all
this in the clear.
