- Does anyone need to approve before we go live?

Beta launch of the XSnippets portion of the OpenNTF website. Same modal of approval for clearance of code used. Do we need the same level of IP clearance? IP manager will monitor. Terms of Use of the site should cover code under the Apache licence.  John H - mentioned marketing that the code has been cleared as opposed to code distributed via a blog or elsewhere. Want to have the process for submitting code very simple.
