You're in MAINTAINERS, so clearly you have papers on file. But is there a
disclaimer or assignment from UBICOM on file? (since the port is a "work
made for hire", they would have a claim on the code).

I think that approval is required; in fact, the SC has to formally accept
new ports, although usually that is just a formality. Once this is done
and you are named maintainer, you can make changes to config/ip2k/...
without approval. But the SC needs to vote to accept the port and name
you as the maintainer.
