The OSS Discovery Contributor Agreement

If you make contributions, and we accept them into our source tree, we want to make sure we have the flexibility to use those contributions under our free software licensing terms, future versions of the open source license and any other terms we may use in the future. Nothing will prevent you from also making your contributions available under any open source licensing terms you choose.

We ask that you allow us this licensing flexibility, so that our intellectual property position does not become too complicated. As a company, we have made a decision to make OSS Discovery an open source project so that it can be as successful as possible. We would like to make sure the copyright and licensing issues are as simple and clear as possible to avoid difficult legal situations in the future. Therefore, if you wish to contribute code, we ask that you do so under our standard contribution agreement, which gives us this flexibility.
