Mike Norman is correct that once code is being developed in Eclipse's CVS,
you don't need contribution questionnaires for each new feature. CQ's are
only required for:
* Any initial code contribution used to kick off a new project. By
definition, this code has been written elsewhere and it needs to be
* Any contribution authored by someone other than a committer which
is adding new functionality to the codebase. In most cases, bug fixes do not
add new functionality athough it's not impossible.
* Any contribution containing third-party code maintained by another
open source project, individual, group, or organization. In addition to
reviewing the contribution, if the license is not the Eclipse Public License
(EPL), the EMO will need to review and approve the third-party license for
compatibility with the EPL.
