Yeah I'm actually quite lax about remembering to put license on my code. I've just thrown up
the MIT license on it.

I'll speak to my colleague, but I know I didn't work on it during work time

Yes, absolutely.

First of all you can't change the license without Aaron's consent - and that of all other
people who have contributed to Luke.NET so far (I'm assuming it is just Aaron's colleague).
 I've just performed a cursory look right now and can't find any information about Luke.NET's
current license.

Second we'd need a software grant by Aaron and his colleague.
Alternatively Aaron and his colleague could sign ICLAs but for complete code imports a sofware
grant is preferred.  See <>.  If the code was created
on company time Aaron may need to check with his employer and have the employer sign a SGA
or CCLA, but he'll know better than us.

Finally we'd have to follow the IP-Clearance process <>
before the code can be imported.

Sorry if this sounds a bit like too much legal hassle, but this is the only way the ASF can
be sure it has all necessary rights to actually distribute the code.
