Hi Deng, 

Below is the rough draft for the IP Clearance. I based it from here 

Thanks for reviewing it! 



NPanday Codebase Intellectual Property (IP) Clearance Status 

NPanday allows projects using the .NET framework to be built with Apache Maven. 
NPanday allows .NET projects to be converted into Maven projects thus allowing 
them to fully utilize the other technologies driven by Maven. 

Project info 

* Which PMC will be responsible for the code: NPanday 

* Into which existing project/module: NPanday (incubating as of 8/13/2010) 

* Officer or member managing donation: Maria Odea Ching 

Completed tasks are shown by the completion date (YYYY-MM-dd). 
Identify the codebase 
date item 
2010-08-01 npanday.codeplex.com 

MD5 or SHA1 sum for donated software: (Note versioned software used to 
calculate sum in parentheses). 

date item 
2011-01-12 Check and make sure that the papers that transfer rights to the ASF 
been received. It is only necessary to transfer rights for the package, the 
core code, and any new code produced by the project. 
2011-01-12 Check and make sure that the files that have been donated have been 
updated to reflect the new ASF copyright. 

Identify name recorded for software grant: the name of the grant as record in 
the grants.txt document so that the grant can be easily identified 
Verify distribution rights 

Corporations and individuals holding existing distribution rights: 

* Codeplex 

date item 
2011-01-12 Check that all active committers have a signed CLA on record. 
2011-01-12 Remind active committers that they are responsible for ensuring that 
a Corporate CLA is recorded if such is required to authorize their 
contributions under their individual CLA. 
2011-01-12 Check and make sure that for all items included with the 
distribution that is not under the Apache license, we have the right to combine 
with Apache-licensed code and redistribute. 
2011-01-12 Check and make sure that all items depended upon by the project is 
covered by one or more of the following approved licenses: Apache, BSD, 
Artistic, MIT/X, MIT/W3C, MPL 1.1, or something with essentially the same 

Generally, the result of checking off these items will be a Software Grant, 
CLA, and Corporate CLA for ASF licensed code, which must have no dependencies 
upon items whose licenses that are incompatible with the Apache License. 

Organizational acceptance of responsibility for the project 

Related VOTEs: 

* The VOTE thread accepting the donation may happen either before or after IP 
clearance. Adoption by lazy concensus is acceptable but not recommended.
