# Process For Accepting Third Party Code Contributions

To improve tracking of contributions to this project we will use a process
modelled on the modified DCO 1.1 and use a "sign-off" procedure on patches that
are being emailed around or contributed in any other way.

The sign-off is a simple line at the end of the explanation for the patch, which
certifies that you wrote it or otherwise have the right to pass it on as an
open-source patch.  The rules are pretty simple: if you can certify the below:

	Developer's Certificate of Origin 1.1

	By making a contribution to this project, I certify that:

	(a). The contribution was created in whole or in part by me and I
	have the right to submit it under the open source license
	indicated in the file; or

	(b). The contribution is based upon previous work that, to the best
	of my knowledge, is covered under an appropriate open source
	License and I have the right under that license to submit that
	work with modifications, whether created in whole or in part
	by me, under the same open source license (unless I am
	permitted to submit under a different license), as indicated
	in the file; or

	(c). The contribution was provided directly to me by some other
	person who certified (a), (b) or (c) and I have not modified
	it.

	(d). The contribution is made free of any other party's intellectual
	property claims or rights.

	(e). I understand and agree that this project and the contribution
	are public and that a record of the contribution (including all
	personal information I submit with it, including my sign-off) is
	maintained indefinitely and may be redistributed consistent with
	project or the open source license(s) involved.

then you just add a line saying

	Signed-off-by: Random J Developer random@developer.org>

using your real name (sorry, no pseudonyms or anonymous contributions.)
