They can't seriously mean a CQ per commit.  100% EPL isn't the
same as 100% EPL/EDL, and yet there are EPL/EDL projects hosted
at Eclipse following this process.

emo-ip-team, can you please confirm that contributions to JGit
which is licensed under only the EDL can still follow figure 1 &
2 on page 1 of the IP process (contributed by a project committer
or employee of same company as committer)?
