|[eclipse.org-committers] Eclipse CLA verification automated today!|
As you may know, the Eclipse Foundation has been working on ways to reduce the barriers to accepting contributions from non-committers. The Contributor License Agreement, which, in essence, removes your requirement to ask the Three Questions on each and every bug, is another step towards that goal.
Signing a CLA was enabled last week, and anyone with an Eclipse Foundation account can sign a CLA right now.
Today, at 2:00pm Eastern (in about 2 hours) we will be checking the Authors of all the commit entries that come into Gerrit and Git. An overview of the workflow is described here:
For more background on the CLA initiative, please see http://bugs.eclipse.org/401236 and these docs:
Like with any initiative, there will be some growing pains, but in the end we feel the CLA will provide a much simpler mechanism for our contributors.
Like always, please feel free to post comments on the related bugs and ask questions by emailing us directly.
