Some useful links. Look for "Parallel IP Process" in each:

http://wiki.eclipse.org/Development_Resources/New_Commmitter_Handbook#Licenses.2C_Intellectual_Property_Due_Diligence.2C_and_other_Legal_Stuff

(or http://bit.ly/16dWHw)

http://eclipse.org/legal/EclipseLegalProcessPoster.pdf

http://eclipse.org/org/documents/Eclipse_Policy_and_Procedure_for_3rd_Party_Dependencies_Final.pdf

(or http://bit.ly/seyVp)

http://wiki.eclipse.org/Development_Resources/HOWTO/Parallel_IP_Process
(or http://bit.ly/5LIve)

In the Eclipse case, I believe the answer to all your "how concerned
are they..." questions is "not in the slightest." They are, for
example, supremely happy with what CVS gives them, the ability to
centrally delete a tree of *,v files and let the dust fall where it
may.
