As a contributor, you must sign CLA document before you can contribute to a repository. EasyCLA lets you sign CLAs from within a pull request. After you sign a CLA or sign a confirmation of association with your company, the status of your pull request is updated and you can contribute.
You can contribute on behalf of a company or contribute individually by doing one or both of the following tasks:
- Confirm your association with a company that has a signed Corporate Contributor License Agreement. You write code for your employer and contribute this code to a project on your employer's behalf.
- Sign an Individual Contributor License Agreement. You are contributing code on your own behalf (code that you write on your own time, and not for an employer or using your employer’s facilities or equipment).
Important: You should not submit a contribution under an Individual CLA if that contribution is done using time and/or material resources belonging to your company. Instead, you should contribute it under a Corporate CLA signed by your company.
