Diagramo Contributor Agreement

As I want to be able to easily integrate code from other people I shamelessly used Monty's Contributor Agreement to create a similar agreement for people that want to contribute to Diagramo core.

It is named Diagramo Contributor Agreement

The reasons for it are:
  • easy to publish under a single license
  • no one can "veto" making the code public or under a certain license
  • long time contributors will no longer be needed to "explicitly marked" donated code each time they make a patch

On the other hand I was trying to read the AGPL for the second time and was able to reach page 5 out of 11 ONLY after I ate a full chocolate and cursed all mind twisted lawyers on the planet.

Why the !@#$ did they have to make it so hard to understand?

Is what George Orwell said : "When there is a gap between one's real and one's declared aims, one turns as it were instinctively to long words and exhausted idioms, like a cuttlefish squirting out ink." ?

So reading AGPL postponed indefinitely.

Diagramo's diagrams are really free

The guys from Wikipedia asked us to make all the diagrams Diagramo generates really free.

So by now all the public diagrams someone creates will be
Attribution-ShareAlike 3.0

This means that anytime you make a diagram public it will be under that license.
