Please follow the simple instructions here:

For a list of who has signed the agreement, see:

Old Instructions

(Note: this page will be redirected to the above link when the contents of /Signed are reflected in the Launchpad membership list above).

In Canonical-sponsored free software projects (where Canonical is the copyright holder), we ask contributors to send us a contributor agreement form by email. This protects ourselves and the project, by maintaining a consistent legal status for the project's code.

In the agreement, the contributor assigns copyright to Canonical, and Canonical simultaneously grants the contributor a very broad license back, so that the contributor retains full rights to re-use, distribute, and continue modifying the contributed code.

We've tried to keep the agreement as simple and comprehensible as possible. It's one page long and should be easy to understand:

How to submit it by email:

  1. Attach the Contributor Agreement PDF to an email. The body of the email should state: "I accept the Canonical Contributor Agreement attached." At the end of the email, please type your full name.
  2. Send the email to james.hunt@canonical.com and Cc to contributor-agreement@canonical.com.

Thank you. If you have any questions, please send them to the appropriate coordinator below.

See /Signed for current signatories.
