Climate Pty Ltd (for the Shared SDS Foundation yet to be incorporated)
Adapted from: http://www.apache.org/licenses/cla-corporate.txt
Thank you for your interest in the Shared SDS Foundation (the
"Foundation"). In order to clarify the intellectual property license
granted with Contributions from any person or entity, the Foundation
must have a Contributor License Agreement ("CLA") on file that has
been signed by each Contributor, indicating agreement to the license
terms below. This license is for your protection as a Contributor as
well as the protection of the Foundation and its users; it does not
change your rights to use your own Contributions for any other purpose.
This version of the Agreement allows an entity (the "Corporation") to
submit Contributions to the Foundation, to authorize Contributions
submitted by its designated employees to the Foundation, and to grant
copyright and patent licenses thereto.
If you have not already done so, please complete and sign, then scan
and email a pdf file of this Agreement to email@example.com.
If necessary, send an original signed Agreement to:
SharedSDS Foundation, c/o Climate Pty Ltd, PO Box 308, Mt Eliza, Vic 3930, Australia.
Please read this document carefully before signing and keep a copy
for your records.

You accept and agree to the following terms and conditions for Your
present and future Contributions submitted to the Foundation. In
return, the Foundation shall not use Your Contributions in a way that
is contrary to the public benefit or inconsistent with its articles
of association and stated objectives and aims as generally displayed
on its public website in effect at the time of the Contribution.
Except for the license granted herein to the Foundation and recipients
of software distributed by the Foundation, You reserve all right,
title, and interest in and to Your Contributions.
"You" (or "Your") shall mean the copyright owner or legal entity
authorized by the copyright owner that is making this Agreement
with the Foundation. For legal entities, the entity making a
Contribution and all other entities that control, are controlled
by, or are under common control with that entity are considered to
be a single Contributor. For the purposes of this definition,
"control" means (i) the power, direct or indirect, to cause the
direction or management of such entity, whether by contract or
otherwise, or (ii) ownership of fifty percent (50%) or more of the
outstanding shares, or (iii) beneficial ownership of such entity.
"Contribution" shall mean the code, documentation or other original
works of authorship expressly identified in Schedule B, as well as
any original work of authorship, including any modifications or
additions to an existing work, that is intentionally submitted by
You to the Foundation for inclusion in, or documentation of, any of
the products owned or managed by the Foundation (the "Work"). For
the purposes of this definition, "submitted" means any form of
electronic, verbal, or written communication sent to the Foundation
or its representatives, including but not limited to communication
on electronic mailing lists, source code control systems, and issue
tracking systems that are managed by, or on behalf of, the
Foundation for the purpose of discussing and improving the Work,
but excluding communication that is conspicuously marked or
otherwise designated in writing by You as "Not a Contribution."
