Contributions

DiceLock Security prefers to do things properly done, so, we prefer that all contributors of ideas, code, or documentation to DiceLock Security projects complete, sign, and submit (via email) a DiceLock Individual Contributor License Agreement (DL-ICLA). The purpose of this agreement is to clearly define the terms under which intellectual property has been contributed to DiceLock Security and thereby allowing us to defend the projects should there be a legal dispute regarding the software at some future time. A signed DL-ICLA is required to be on file before an individual Contribution is accepted to a DiceLock Security project. The DL-ICLA is not tied to any employer corporation, so it is recommended to use one's personal email address in the contact details, rather than a job address.

For a corporation that has assigned employees to work on a DiceLock Security project, a DiceLock Corporate Contributor License Agreement (DL-CCLA) is available for contributing intellectual property via a corporation. A signed DL-CCLA is required to be on file before a corporate Contribution is accepted to a DiceLock Security project. Note that a DL-CCLA does not remove the need for every developer to sign their own DL-ICLA as an individual to cover any of their contributions which are not owned by the corporation signing the DL-CCLA.

CLAs may be submitted by emailing a scan of the signed copy to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. .

Your name may be published at your will and if you prefer you can provide an alternative Public name. The email address and other contact details are not published.
