Subject [jira] [Created] (CB-11916) Drop requirement for an iCLA for contributions
Date Wed, 28 Sep 2016 07:58:20 GMT
Shazron Abdullah created CB-11916:

             Summary: Drop requirement for an iCLA for contributions
                 Key: CB-11916
             Project: Apache Cordova
          Issue Type: Task
          Components: Docs
            Reporter: Shazron Abdullah
            Assignee: Shazron Abdullah

Discussion here:

Consensus achieved. Proceeding with PR.

Repro'ed here:
It's up to us to decide, and right now we require the iCLA except for trivial contributions.

I want to change this to a more relaxed requirement:
1. Non-committers do not require an iCLA (you need one anyway to get an account, so that's
really a non-issue)
2. Require a clear intent by the author to contribute under our normal terms, for a non-trivial

So some of you will be wondering, what does Apache say about this?

Roy Fielding:
"Yes, that opinion comes from me speaking as a board member and
author of the Apache License, and has previously been cleared
with Apache's legal team for a long ago discussion with Incubator.
We don't need a CLA on file to accept contributions from non-committers.
We just need a clear intent by the author to contribute under
our normal terms."

Other opinions:

We need to change our Contribute page:

... as well as any PR templates:

This declaration of intent, if posted on Github, will be reflected on
since Apache sends out an email on each PR or comment to a PR, so we will be able to track
it in our archives.

As usual it is always the committer's responsibility to make sure that all code they push
to a repository is compliant with ASF policies.
