JIRA is normally sufficient for a patch.

For larger contributions, then a CLA may be required.

I used to use OpenVMS in my day job (and had used it since VMS 5.x on
VAX) but I've not used it for a couple of years.

I did a bit of work on the OpenVMS parts of Exec and fixed a few
problems a while back.

However I did not fix all the problems; at the time there seemed to be
some limitations in the VMS JVM implementation that made it very
difficult to get Exec working as well on VMS as it does elsewhere,
particularly in regard to process termination.

I'd be very happy to assist on this in any way I can.
