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.
