Right. So that we're clear -- submission of an ICLA/CLA is orthogonal to
discussing the merits of an individual's contributions to the VCL project.
We should be able to discuss their contributions, hold a committer vote (if we
deem the contributions merit it), and ask someone to join the project -- even
if they have not submitted an ICLA. An ICLA is required before an Apache svn
login will be created. But that shouldn't hold up discussion of merits…
The only time this process might be slowed down is if we know someone may not
be willing/able to sign an ICLA. If that's the case, I'd like to see that
discussed, also… ;-)
