Contributor agreement

As a CNCF Project, we’ve chosen to use the foundation’s Contributor License Agreements

to ensure that contributions are authorized and in good faith. We do this in preference to the Developer Certificate of Origin (DCO) as a large portion of our contributor community don’t have familiarity with it.

The contributor agreement signing process is managed through the use of the Linux Foundation’s EasyCLA opensource project and is automatically verified on any pull requests.
