Thanks to Glen for raising the issue. The ideal approach is if Oleg would pack up his TIFFRenderer and donate it to the ASF accompanied with a software grant , but Oleg is a FOP committer and has a CLA on file. So if Oleg attaches a ZIP with the sources for the TIFFRenderer (ALv2 already applied) to a Bugzilla entry along with a note that we may include it in FOP, that's good enough for me. It's not that the thing is a big application in itself even though some people would argue works like Renaud's AWT patch and Oleg's TIFFRenderer must go/run through the Incubator.
