  1. Contributing to Meteor
  3. Thank you for contributing code to the Meteor project! Like many open source projects, we
  4. need you to enter into a contributor license agreement with us before we can merge in your
  5. changes.
  7. In brief, by submitting your code to the Meteor project, you are granting us a right to use that
  8. code under the terms of the below Agreement, including the right for us to make available,
  9. grant rights to use and provide your code to others. You are also certifying that you wrote the
  10. code, and that you are allowed to license it to us. You are not giving up your ownership in your
  11. work.
  13. Contributor license agreements are important because they define the chain of ownership of a
  14. piece of software. Some companies and organizations won't allow the use of free software
  15. without clear agreements around code ownership. That's why many open source projects
  16. collect similar agreements from contributors.
  19. RECORDS. If you
  20. have questions about the Agreement, or if you cannot submit an electronic copy, please
  21. contact us at

  32. 1. Definitions.
  33. "You" or "Your" means the copyright owner or legal entity authorized by the copyright
  34. owner that is making this Agreement with Meteor. For legal entities, the entity making a
  35. Contribution and all other entities that control, are controlled by, or are under common
  36. control with that entity are considered to be a single Contributor. For the purposes of
  37. this definition, "control" means (i) the power, direct or indirect, to cause the direction or
  38. management of such entity, whether by contract or otherwise, or (ii) ownership of fifty
  39. percent (50%) or more of the outstanding shares, or (iii) beneficial ownership of such
  40. entity.
  41. "Contribution" means any original work of authorship, including any modifications or
  42. additions to an existing work, that is submitted by You to Meteor for inclusion in, or
  43. documentation of, any of the products and services owned or managed by Meteor (the
  44. "Work"). For the purposes of this definition, "submitted" means any form of electronic,
  45. verbal, or written communication sent to Meteor or its representatives, including but
  46. not limited to communication on electronic mailing lists, source code control systems,
  47. and issue tracking systems that are managed by, or on behalf of, Meteor for the purpose

  49. conspicuously marked or otherwise designated in writing by You as "Not a
  50. Contribution."
  52. 2. Grant of License.
  53. Subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, You hereby grant to Meteor and
  54. to recipients of products and services distributed by Meteor a perpetual, worldwide,

  69. submitted. If any entity institutes patent litigation against You or any other entity
  70. (including a cross-claim or counterclaim in a lawsuit) alleging that your Contribution, or
  71. the Work to which you have contributed, constitutes direct or contributory patent
  72. infringement, then any patent licenses granted to that entity under this Agreement for
  73. that Contribution or Work shall terminate as of the date such litigation is filed.

  76. your employer(s) has rights to intellectual property that you create that includes your
  77. Contributions, you represent and warrant that you have received permission to make
  78. Contributions on behalf of that employer, and that your employer has waived such
  79. rights for your Contributions to Meteor.

  82. (see section 7 for submissions on behalf of others); and (ii) Your Contribution
  83. submissions include complete details of any third-party license(s) or any other
  84. restriction(s) (including, but not limited to, related patents and trademarks, whether

  86. you are personally aware and which are associated with any part of Your Contributions.
  88. 6. You are not expected to provide support for Your Contributions, except to the extent
  89. You desire to provide support. You may provide support for free, for a fee, or not at all.
  90. Unless required by applicable law or agreed in writing, you provide your contributions
  91. on an "as is" basis, without warranties or conditions of any kind, either express or
  92. implied, including, without limitation, any warranties or conditions of title, non-
  93. infringement, merchantability, or fitness for a particular purpose.

  97. and of any license or other restriction (including, but not limited to, related patents,
  98. trademarks, and license agreements) of which you are personally aware, and
  99. conspicuously marking the work as "Submitted on behalf of a third-party: [named
  100. here]".
  102. 8. You agree to notify Meteor of any facts or circumstances of which you become aware
  103. that would make these representations inaccurate in any respect.

  107. laws of the Province of British Columbia and the federal laws of Canada applicable
