Board and Johanna,
A member of our community approached us with an interest of open
sourcing a substantial project. He is asking that contributors sign
*his* CLA before contributing to the project since he is about to open
source what is the lifeblood of his company.
I'm torn; I want the contribution but I have not faced CLA's before at
OWASP. Apache and others do require these...
My though is, we may want to consider a OWASP CLA someday, but if a
company requires a CLA for commercial purposes, we politely pass.
That aside, I do not have a solid opinion on this matter and I'm not
sure how to respond....
