These are some frequently asked questions, with answers, to GENIVI's Contribution License Agreement
Q: Where can I view the CLA?
A: Its available here as a PDF: http://www.genivi.org/sites/default/files/GENIVI_CLA.pdf
Q: I work for a company that has a CLA with GENIVI (and I am listed as one of the authorized contributors). Do I have to apply "Signed-off-by" to the patches I send?
A: Yes. If your company has signed a CLA with GENIVI you have to have a "Signed-off-by" line on your patch. In addition, you'll have to be designated as an authorized contributor by your company, otherwise GENIVI cannot accept the patch.
Not every company has signed the CLA. Some companies contributed based on a typical open source process.
