Sections 2.1.1 and Section 5.1.1 address the transfer of JSRs from one Spec Lead (or Maintenance Lead) to another. Can we add anything here to make the transition simpler?

Should we insert language encouraging the outgoing SL or ML to transfer IP to the new lead since without this it will effectively be impossible for someone else to take over? (Whether or not this is necessary will depend on how the output of the JSR is licensed.)

Comment by pcurran [ 01/Apr/15 ]

If IP vests immediately it is contributed and we have a flat IP-flow whereby rights are passed directly from the contributor to whoever is developing the JSR then we may not need anything else.
