Note that there is some interesting talk about the need for these at all on the

had a lot to say.

Out of curiousity. How many folks would NOT sign such an agreement? Would
the mere presence of such a thing scared you away in the first place?

is could be accepted by an OSGeo project and as part of the incubation process 
projects would try to collect as many of these from past and current contributors
as possible. The documents are available for review at:


Please pass comments back through me...
