In addition to the licence, what is the use of a “contributor agreement” and where to find one?

While the licence regulates the use of the distributed covered work (how far can recipients use the source code, copy, modify, distribute the work), a contributor agreement regulates the relationship between a project owner and the various persons or developers who contribute to this project (the project governance and project owner authority, the possible outbound licences, the copyright vested to the various parties).


Joinup publishes the “ISA Contributor Agreement v1.1” that is used for some Joinup hosted projects.
