+In order for us to continue to dual-license our Canvas product to best serve all
+of our customers, we need you to sign [our contributor agreement](https://github.com/instructure/canvas-lms/wiki/ica.pdf)
+before we can accept a pull request from you. Please read our [FAQ](https://github.com/instructure/canvas-lms/wiki/FAQ)
+for more information.
+
+To save yourself a considerable headache, please consider doing development against
+our master branch, instead of the default stable branch. Our stable branch is
+occasionally reforked from master from time to time, so your Git history may get
+very confused if you are attempting to contribute changesets against stable.
