The Contribution Questionnaire is the first step in initiating the due diligence and approval process by the Project Manager (PM) for any significant contribution of content to be committed to the project. Prior to completing this Questionnaire, the Committer should have technical agreement from the PM that the new code is required. Once the PM has approved, the Committer, with the assistance of one or more of the contributors, may begin the due diligence and approval process by completing and submitting this questionnaire.
What is meant by a significant contribution?
Any initial code contribution used to kick off a new project. By definition, this code has been written elsewhere and it needs to be reviewed.
Any contribution authored by someone other than a committer which is adding new functionality to the codebase. In most cases, bug fixes do not add new functionality although it's not impossible.
Any contribution containing third-party code maintained by another open source project, individual, group, or organization. In addition to reviewing the contribution, if the license is not the Common Public License (CPL) or Apache License 2.0, the PM will need to review and approve the third-party license for compatibility with the CPL or Apache License 2.0.
