-Re: Hive 0.9 release

I think we also need to get the RAT report cleaned up. Apache projects
aren't supposed to release while they have files without the Apache
header. I've filed HIVE-2930 to fix all of the issues.
While working on it, I found that one of the files was added by
HIVE-2246. HIVE-2246 was contributed by Sohan Jain, who hasn't filed
an ICLA, and doesn't have the jira box checked for contribution. Does
someone know him and can ask him to state on the jira that he intended
to contribute it? Failing that, I believe he was working at Facebook
at the time, so someone else who is still there can upload the patch
to the jira?
All of this brings up a challenge in that Phabricator and the Apache
review tool upload patches to jira without providing a way to check
the "contribute to Apache" box. Without the checkbox we should only
commit patches from people who have filed ICLAs. Is there a way to add
an option the arc command that will check the box? Even having it
*always* check the box is better than having it not check the box.
(Although it should warn users that it is doing so.)
