Hi Roger,

I want to point out up top (you mention it below) the editing history:

> Ian -- I think that you took out the voting and patent sections because there are no requirements, right? 

Right:

1) The proc doc voting requirements don't apply to BGs.
2) The patent requirements are covered by the CLA and FSA; you could link to them but I thought it was unnecessary.

No problem with that.

I would avoid paraphrasing the policy. You could just say something vanilla like "Contributions are made under Community and Business Group agreements" with a link to the agreements.

[Meanwhile, I am working on a summary of the policy (not yet ready).]
