From an email sent to many people who have not signed the contributor agreement yet:
Dear Fedora Contributor, Recently, we announced that Fedora is in the process of retiring our old "Individual Contributor License Agreement" (also known as the ICLA or CLA) and replacing it with the new Fedora Project Contributor Agreement (FPCA). All Fedora contributors with accounts in the Fedora Account System (https://admin.fedoraproject.org/accounts) who have agreed to the old CLA *MUST* agree to the new FPCA by June 17, 2011 to continue contributing to Fedora. At this point in time, you have not yet agreed to the FPCA. If you do not agree to the FPCA soon, you will be removed from "cla_done" and lose access to any groups that depend upon "cla_done", including "packager", "ambassador", Fedora People, and some Fedora Hosted projects. To avoid this, just login to the Fedora Account system and agree to the FPCA. Here is how you do it: 1) Login to the Fedora Account System: https://admin.fedoraproject.org/accounts 2) Once logged in, click on the "My Account" link in the blue box on the left side of the window. 3) On the page that loads, you will see a section labeled "Account Details". Look for the line that says "Contributor Agreement". On that line, you should see a new section that says: "New CLA Not Signed - We need contributors to sign the new Contributor Agreement(Complete it now!)" Click on "Complete it now!" and follow the prompts. ***** More information about the FPCA, including the final FPCA text, can be found here: https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Legal:Fedora_Project_Contributor_Agreement If you have any additional questions about the FPCA or the re-signing process, please feel free to email me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks, Tom Callaway, Fedora Legal
