The Apache Software Foundation Apache Harmony Project Bulk Contribution Checklist v 1.1 20051114 The Apache Harmony project is dedicated to producing a codebase that has clear IP pedigree and protects the IP rights of others. As part of this effort, we ask the following questions of all contributions of software that has been created outside of the project. Our goal is to provide clear and consistent oversight of the project codebase, as well as encourage our contributors to carefully examine their contributions before bringing to the project. Please Note : This document and your answers are considered public information, and shall be part of the Apache Harmony project public records. Part I : Identification Please provide the following information Name : ___________________________________________ E-mail : ___________________________________________ Mailing address : ___________________________________________ ___________________________________________ ___________________________________________ ___________________________________________ Employer : ___________________________________________ Part II : Description Please describe the contribution : Part III : Statement of Origination a) Have you personally written all of the code or other material that you are intending to contribute to this project, and if so, are you an Authorized Contributor for all parts of the contribution? [ ] Yes [ ] No If "yes", you're done with Part III, skip to Part IV If "no" please continue with the rest of Part III b) Have you verified the development history of the code to identify ALL of the authors? Please list the other authors: c) Do you have a written agreement with all of the authors that either gives you ownership of the material or otherwise provides you sufficient rights to submit this material to the project on their behalf. Please provide the details of this agreement: d) Are all of the authors Authorized Contributors for the part of the contribution written/created by each author? [ ] Yes ? if "yes", you're done with Part III, skip to Part IV.

[ ] Yes [ ] No (i) If No, you must provide Authorized Contributor Questionnaires for the authors of the code created after May 2005 such that those authors are classified as Authorized Contributors for the portions of the contribution written by them after May 2005. f) Did any of the authors of the code have access to third party implementations of similar technology while developing the contribution? [ ] Yes [ ] No If "yes", please give details below : g) Was the code developed in accordance with a development process which was designed to prevent unauthorized inclusion of third party intellectual property rights into the code? (e.g., does the process require that developers not have concurrent access to third party implementations of similar technology during development?) [ ] Yes [ ] No If "no", the code isn't eligible for the Harmony Project. If "yes", please provide short description of the process, focusing on protections related to third party intellectual property : Note : The Apache Harmony project generally performs additional scans of it's codebase, including bulk contributions, to help confirm code pedigree. Prior to submitting any contribution, we strongly encourage you to verify that the contribution is acceptable. Please see http://harmony.apache.org/code_scan_tools.html for more information.
