The contribution license is inspired (i.e. copied and adapted) from the Apache Contributor License Agreement, as is the following reasoning for requiring such a license: Magnolia International desires that all contributors of ideas, code, or documentation to the Magnolia projects complete, sign, and submit (via mail or fax) a Contributor License Agreement (CLA). The purpose of this agreement is to clearly define the terms under which intellectual property has been contributed to Magnolia International and thereby allow us to defend the project should there be a legal dispute regarding the software at some future time. A signed CLA is required to be on file before an individual is given commit rights to a Magnolia project.
If you have not already done so, please complete our Magnolia Contributor License Agreement (.pdf) and send it by facsimile to Magnolia International at +41 61 228-9001, or send a photocopy by regular mail to:
4142 Münchenstein (Basel)
Please read this document carefully before signing and keep the original for your records.
