Would these proposed policy changes also apply to ctdb, or just Samba?

The reason I ask is that I'm currently working on a PMDA for ctdb[1]
which is based off some GPLv2+ code with corporate (Silicon Graphics)
copyright assignment. It may be better suited to live outside the ctdb
tree anyway, but thought I'd check.
