1 # Contributions to Lift by non-committers
3 From the beginning of the Lift project, Lift has had a very well
4 defined and restrictive Intellectual Property (IP) policy. All
5 code in the various Lift repositories was created exclusively
6 by committers who signed an IP assignment agreement (we adopted
7 the Plone IP assignment.) All Lift code was created exclusively
8 by the committers and the copyright in such code was assigned to
9 an entity that holds the Lift copyrights.
11 The reason for the IP assignment and the rigor was that, 6 years ago,
12 the way the law treated open source was not as clear. It was also
13 very important to demonstrate to corporate adopters of Lift that the
14 use of Lift was free of any potential litigation.
16 Times have changed:
18 * The GitHub model of pull requests is
19 prevalent and there have not been legal challenges that I'm aware of.
20 * Lift is a well accepted, well regarded framework and has not have
21 any material acceptance issues related to Lift's code provenance.
23 So, as of November 12, 2012, the Lift committers have voted 21-0
24 to adopt a new contribution acceptance policy.
26 We will accept pull requests into the [Lift codebase](
27 if the pull requests meet the following criteria:
29 * One or more of the following:
30 * Documentation including ScalaDoc comments in code
31 * Example code
32 * Small changes, enhancements, or bug fixes to Lift's code
33 * Each pull request must include a signature at the bottom of the
34 `/` file.
36 I look forward to seeing how Lift will continue to grow with the new
37 contribution policy.
