Unfortunately it seems like the board didn't realise that a big issue was brewing for quite a few years as clear rules were not set.
That seems unlikely to repeat itself?
Putting this burden on everyone **up-front** and **by default** (with the added twist that people need to prove their contribution is not commercial), I believe is a terrible idea. TDF would be well-advised to have fewer, not more, hurdles for code contribution.You may have missed that in my previous emails I clearly stated that the "burden" is not up-front, is not by default and people do not need to prove their contribution is not commercial. I actually said: "I'm not even suggesting that each individual proposing a project should sign it, only when the project is being proposed by or it becomes controlled mostly by a single company."
Great. So why do you want it in the policy then? As you point out, most projects start as individual initiatives. Your proposed text for the policy _does_ constitute a default, up-front requirement. Perhaps it needs rewording then, to better carry your intended meaning? Best, -- Thorsten
