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? 


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).]
