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.

  1. Definitions.

    "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 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."

  2. Grant of Copyright License.

    Subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, You hereby
    grant to the Foundation and to recipients of software distributed by
    the Foundation a perpetual, worldwide, non-exclusive, no-charge,
    royalty-free, irrevocable copyright license to reproduce, prepare
    derivative works of, publicly display, publicly perform, sublicense, and
    distribute Your Contributions and such derivative works.

  3. Grant of Patent License.

    Subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, You hereby
    grant to the Foundation and to recipients of software distributed
    by the Foundation a perpetual, worldwide, non-exclusive, no-charge,
    royalty-free, irrevocable (except as stated in this section) patent
    license to make, have made, use, offer to sell, sell, import, and
    otherwise transfer the Work, where such license applies only to those
    patent claims licensable by You that are necessarily infringed by Your
    Contribution(s) alone or by combination of Your Contribution(s)
    with the Work to which such Contribution(s) was submitted. If any
    entity institutes patent litigation against You or any other entity
    (including a cross-claim or counterclaim in a lawsuit) alleging
    that your Contribution, or the Work to which you have contributed,
    constitutes direct or contributory patent infringement, then any
    patent licenses granted to that entity under this Agreement for
    that Contribution or Work shall terminate as of the date such
    litigation is filed.

  4. You represent that You are legally entitled to grant the above
    license. If your employer(s) has rights to intellectual property
    that you create that includes your Contributions, you represent
    that you have received permission to make Contributions on behalf
    of that employer, that your employer has waived such rights for
    your Contributions to the Foundation, or that your employer has
    executed a separate Corporate CLA with the Foundation.

  5. You represent that each of Your Contributions is Your original
    creation (see section 7 for submissions on behalf of others). You
    represent that Your Contribution submissions include complete
    details of any third-party license or other restriction (including,
    but not limited to, related patents and trademarks) of which you
    are personally aware and which are associated with any part of Your

  6. You are not expected to provide support for Your Contributions,
    except to the extent You desire to provide support. You may provide
    support for free, for a fee, or not at all. Unless required by applicable
    law or agreed to in writing, You provide Your Contributions on an
    ANY KIND, either express or implied, including, without limitation,
    any warranties or conditions of TITLE, NON-INFRINGEMENT,

  7. Should You wish to submit work that is not Your original creation,
    You may submit it to the Foundation separately from any
    Contribution, identifying the complete details of its source and of
    any license or other restriction (including, but not limited to,
    related patents, trademarks, and license agreements) of which you
    are personally aware, and conspicuously marking the work as
    "Submitted on behalf of a third-party: [named here]".

  8. You agree to notify the Foundation of any facts or circumstances of
    which you become aware that would make these representations
    inaccurate in any respect.
