I assume the person or company that pushes the notice can be one of the ACKs is this correct?

Also does the ACK need to come from a person working for a company or can this person be an independent developer? Maybe a very minor point, but someone that is working for a company could Ack independent of the company if so stated. Just be careful how you word the requirement, something like ‘Only one Ack per company or independent developer’
