Wayne published detailed rules how contributions from non-committers
are to be handled when received via Gerrit .Â
The difference to theÂprocess we used so far is in section 4:
4. Contributor asserts on the corresponding bug or in a comment on the Gerrit pushÂ
record that they:
- authored 100% the content they are contributing
- have the rights to donate the content to EPL
- contribute the content under the EPL
Up to now we only did that on changes over 250 LOCs which
need a CQ to get IP approval from the legal team. Effective
immediately we now have to also record these assertions for
smaller contributions coming from non-committers. The same
assertions are needed if a contribution comes via a patch
attached to a Bugzilla bug.
There is a proposal to further simplify this process following a similar
approach as the one used by the linux kernel project using Signed-off-by
tags , but this is still under discussion with the legal team.
Please ensure that you follow the guidelines given in  starting from now on.
I updated the contributor guide accordingly .
