I don't understand this part -- why would the CLA need to specify what
the outbound documentation license is? On the software side, the CLA
does not specify that code will be licensed under the Apache
License. What constrains the Foundation to distributing CLA-licensed
code under the Apache License is the bylaws IP policy, not anything in
the CLA itself.
