Thanks for the information and history there, that was quite helpful.

who contributed it to the Hashicorp Github org like many other community providers and then

You would be in a a better position to judge this, but I can see 8 to 10 people (out of the
39) that have probably made significant contributions, some very significant. It unclear to
me if these people were contacted.

advised us to get all major contributors to agree in the other legal thread but now suddenly
we are advised to get ICLAs too and from all the contributors.

My very first email in that thread suggested you would need ICLAs from the major contributors.
Having an agreement via other means is probably fine, but not the usual process. Roman (V.P.
Legal) also suggested you contact these contributors.

> The examples you've provided don't have ICLAs or agreements from all contributors.

Not all, but they have ICLAs from all major contributors. More importantly the information
is in a form where it easy to see what has been provided which makes accepting the IP clearance
an easy process.
