Apache Contributor License Agreement

The contributor conferred copyright on Canonical and, at the same time, Canonical gave the contributor “a worldwide, non-exclusive, free and permanent right to use, copy, modify, communicate and communicate the allocated contributions (including, but not limited to, the Internet), and to disseminate the allocated contributions in an initial or modified form, how (they) desire it. [35] [36] It is important to note that the COD is not a licence. The project license – in our case the Apache License – is the license under which the contribution is made. However, the DCO associated with the Apache license can be considered a “best practice” variant of CLA superior to the CLAs currently required by OpenStack. However, it is optional and any contributor cannot assign their copyright to KDE e.V. For those who have never contributed to the project or have been involved in the project for a long time, it is very easy to underestimate the importance of the CLA barrier for new contributors. Once you`ve become familiar with OpenStack and its development process, and found a way to contribute, you`re ready to submit your contribution to gerrit. But wait! What is this CLA? The files should be called icla.pdf and icla.pdf.asc for individual chords; ccla.pdf and ccla.pdf.asc for company agreements; software-grant.pdf and software-grant.pdf.asc for grants. Generally speaking, a clear intention of the author to contribute to the Apache license terms is required and a clear record of this intention is required. That`s why posts on appendices in Bugzilla or JIRA, or the post of an email list, or something like that, work. No no. This is one of the reasons why we need a CLA. No contributor can maintain such a threat to the entire user community. As soon as you contribute, say we can use this piece of code forever.

This agreement describes how you authorize PKP to use your software contribution. The signing of this agreement does not change your rights to use, modify, and distribute this software under the terms of the GPL. Initially, this seemed like a natural approach, as projects run by the Apache Software Foundation use individual and corporate CLAs on which OpenStack CLAs are text-based….
