Contributor Licensing Agreement

We require that contributors sign a CLA (Contributor Licensing Agreement) and send it to eZ Systems. In short, this CLA gives eZ Systems a non-exclusive right to use contributed code in eZ publish or any other product owned or managed by eZ Systems.

For more information about what rights the CLA gives eZ Systems, please read the CLA.

Who doesn't need to sign the CLA

If you provide us with small patches or bugfixes via our bugsystem, in most cases we do not need you to sign a CLA. Generally, authors cannot claim copyright for small fixes.

Also, if you have written a contribution and want to make it available in the contribution area of the eZ website, you do not need to sign the CLA. You are free to just upload your contribution to the site.

Who needs to sign the CLA

You will need to sign the CLA if you are the copyright holder of any code which you want eZ Systems to include in eZ Publish or the eZ Components. Such code includes (but is not limited to):

  • complete/incomplete extensions for eZ Publish
  • complete components for the eZ Components
  • patches
  • templates
  • PHP files
  • configuration files
  • documentation files

How do you submit the CLA to eZ Systems?

We prefer that you print a copy of the CLA, sign it and send it to us by regular mail:
