Hi Patrick,

The "Notice on the "attach patch" JIRA page that it has the " Grant license to 
ASF for inclusion in ASF works .... " option. This has to be checked for us to 
consider a patch for inclusion. " is not accurate in this case.

James and I are are bother Apache committers and Members, as such when we 
commit code to the ASF repository like what James had done, and like when you 
do when you commit code to zookeeper trunk, a license is granted to the ASF.  
The jira feature is really only there to be able to accept code from folks who 
have not filed an ICLA with the ASF.

Another way to view this development model is as if we were ZooKeeper 
committers who do not commit to trunk but which develop new features and bug 
fixes in development branches.  This model of development is use extensively in 
projects who are adverse to destabilizing the trunk.  They develop and test new 
features in a branch and then merge back once folks are happy with it.

This model is also outlined at [Rules for
