Code Contribution Policy affirmed, and Academic Advisory Group
30 August 2009, 7:25 PM
Hi all, two important pieces of news, one for developers and one for academics interested in Mahara:
Code Contribution Policy
The Code Contribution Policy is now official. From now, all submitted patches will need to comply with these terms, to ensure that all contributions are legal. Mostly, this won't affect anyone, other than that you'll have to "sign" your patches. See the document for more details.
The final policy only requires that you license your changes to us - you keep your copyright on the code.
Academic Advisory Group
Mark Brown has announced the formation of a Mahara International Academic Advisory Group, and is calling for expressions of interest to join it. Mark writes:
"In consultation with Richard Wyles, we believe it is timely to establish an Academic Advisory Group as international interest continues to grow in the use of Mahara.
