Re: [incubation] Piggybacks: Project Handbook vs CQ creation form

Many third party libraries have already been approved for use in Eclipse projects. While these libraries have already been cleared for use by all projects, their use must be tracked so that—in the event that a issue is uncovered following the due diligence process—we can mitigate the impact of that issue.

Note: There is no longer a requirement to create third party requests for reuse (piggybacks).

Am I correct in assuming that the handbook is slightly out of date on the necessity of piggybacks?
