Subject [legal] contribution policy and proposed guidelines posted to site
Date Mon, 25 Jul 2005 13:43:15 GMT

I apologize for the delay.  I have added to our website (please allow  
up to 4 hours from now for propagation to public site)  :

1) Our proposed contribution framework for the project.  This should  
currently be considered 'proposed' as we do the final nip-and-tucks,  
and get any remaining comments from the community.  I believe there  
was general support and consensus, except for some minor issues :

- requiring a CCLA from employers : I've dropped this, as it's  
impractical, although we must encourage people to get them if  
possible, and should work to set an example if we can

- require a formal resolution of non-competes : We had that we  
required anyone under a non-compete to be required to get a  
resolution from their former employer.  I thought there was some  
opposition to this, so I've softened it to be for areas that overlap  
with the Apache harmony project.  We may want to revert back to a  
requirement, but I'd love to hear some feedback.

2) I borrowed the project governance guidelines from the Apache HTTPD  
project and posted them as our proposed guidelines.  They certainly  
require some additional work, but we needed a starting point, and  
there it is :)

I will follow this note w/ my legal to-do list to keep things clear.
