- <p>Due to corporate issues and a resulting requirement for copyright cleanliness, we have to require contributors to sign a license agreement. The agreement basically states that you allow us the use of code contributed by you, guaranteeing the project's legal safety. If you work for <em>Soprano Brain Alliance</em>, we've already got you covered. For everyone else, we'll be featuring an electronic form for you to sign the agreement in short order.</p>

<p>The <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/BSD_licenses#3-clause_license_.28.22New_BSD_License.22_or_.22Modified_BSD_License.22.29">New BSD license</a> allows pretty much everything except the use of the contributors' names in forks without explicit permission. We chose it to guarantee that all code contributions can be salvaged should anything happen to the project, and to guarantee that the code is safe to use in proprietary, third-party projects.</p>

- <p>The Xi project is not a legal entity, but the license's copyright statement has to reference at least one. We'd like Xi to be a community driven effort and not rest on corporate entities, so we used our actual names. The license states: <em><q>"Copyright (c) 2011, Mikko Forsström, Mikko Hirvonen, Eevert Saukkokoski"</q></em>. These are the names of three guys currently or formerly of <em>Soprano Brain Alliance</em> with intent to improve the state of PHP.</p>

<p>The notation is merely symbolic; we represent the Xi project, and you aren't signing away anything you wouldn't expect to with a New BSD license.</p>
<p>That said, software licensing is not a simple beast, and none of us are legal experts. If you think there's something wrong with out licensing terms, contact us so we can sort it out.</p>
