If you want to contribute to the OpenMediaVault project you have to subscribe a CLA. Please check http://www.openmediavault.org/contributoragreement.html for more details.

Note that the CLA is not a transfer of copyright ownership, this simply is a license agreement for contributions. You also do not change your rights to use your own contributions for any other purpose.

  • Can I submit patches without having signed the OCA?
No. All contributors and patch submitters must sign the OCA before they submit anything substantial. Trivial patches like spelling fixes or missing words won't require an agreement, since anybody could do those. However, almost anything will require a CLA.
