Having the code under APv2 is not always enough for IP clearance, either a software grant
or CLAs (individual or company) are required. [1] All of the initial committers are members
or committers in other projects so there's no issue re ICLAs. [2]

Is it possible that your employer could have an IP claim on the code? Under most employment
contracts all code belongs to the employer not the employee. If you are employed by someone
then getting them to submitting a CCLA may be a good idea just so the IP ownership is crystal
