The Eclipse Foundation is implementing Contributor License Agreements (CLA) to improve its intellectual property (IP) management and workflow. In part, CLAs are a portion of the work required to implement signed-off-by for all contributions coming to Eclipse via Git or Gerrit.
The desire is to completely automate the workflows associated with CLAs in order to significantly reduce the effort required by contributors and committers to provide and accept contributions to Eclipse projects.
