RE: [technology-pmc] Re: EPF: Seeking approval for 2 contributions


We can proceed with submitting the contribution questionnaire with EPL code only. Aftere the donation is approved, EPF team
can work together to redesign or fill the gaps left by removing the non-EPL components. I will work with Onno ( representative
of LogicCMG ) on the exact next steps.

FYI - This is actually a topic that is being actively reviewed by the IP
