Bringing in an updated version is fairly lightweight.
I recently did this for a fontconfig header file.
There's a web-based form where you fill in the info, confirming the
license hasn't changed, and it gets a short review by a lawyer
and that's about it. Filling in the form takes about 20 mins max.
Most of the time is waiting for a lawyer to be assigned and approve it.
A little under 6 days elapsed time for me from submission to approval.
