Re: [] Improving license check for dependencies

I concur with what Wayne is writing here. I'm a little bit concerned that removing the need for a PMC approval might cause problems, especially for projects with many new committers. With the new IP policies in place I expect the number of new CQs to drop significantly and cause much less of a hassle.

Best regards,

Specifically, the IP Team depends on the PMC to confirm that the requested dependency is indeed, for example, a prerequisite (and not, say, a works with). The EMO and IP Team are not generally able to make that assessment. The engagement from the PMC also gives the IP Team a hook into the PMC the event that they need assistance in working through issues encountered in their review (when they need more help than the project team can provide).
