Here are some quick guidelines for handling code
- All WTP contributions from 3rd
parties must be submitted via Bugzilla patches, never via email, RAM keys,
or other untraceable means. “3rd party” means the
person is not (yet) a WTP committer.
- Any such contribution over 100
lines (as measured by “wc” or an equivalent tool, optionally
excluding whitespace but not excluding comments) must be accompanied by a contribution
- Committers do not need to do
this *unless* they are
transferring existing IP (for example, committing code to the Eclipse CVS
repository that was originally written for their employer).
- Any code contribution must be
EPL-licensable and be free of proprietary copyrights or restrictions.
- Any contribution questionnaires
should be logged in the WTP “IP Log”….which we’ll
be setting up on the WTP website shortly (stay tuned).
These guidelines are a distillation of information from the Eclipse
Development Process, Due Diligence Guidelines,
and the Eclipse
