Contributing to Anchore

Signing your contribution

We've chosen to use the Developer's Certificate of Origin (DCO) method that is employed by the Linux Kernel Project, which provides a simple way to contribute to the Anchore project.

The process is to certify the below DCO 1.1 text

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

(d) 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
    this project or the open source license(s) involved.

Then, when it comes time to submit a contribution, include the following text in your contribution commit message:

Signed-off-by: Joan Doe <>

This message can be entered manually, or if you have configured git with the correct and, you can use the -s option to git commit to automatically include the signoff message.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
