IP Working Committee
Committers - Project got committed to Apache catalog without IP Manager approval.
Discussions ensued - Niklas is now clear on the IP rules and will not commit code to catalogs until a new and/or temporary IP Manager is sourced.
IP Manager is required for all submissions to the catalog
Niklas asked about projects that were deemed "simple" in nature which wouldn't require much IP review.
Need an update from Nathan on status of funds for acquiring Peter Tanners services.
Motion - To allow a legal resource to act as a temporary IP manager GPL and IP APL to approve scanning of code in projects. John would be the IP OpenNTF Manager working via proxy with the legal resource.
The motion was passed with all in favor.
John will follow up with Nathan. Check on publicity of this.
Remember there is an IP working group call on Friday morning. John asked the committee for feedback on how to get more people.
