The Eclipse Foundation has implemented 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. All contributors are required to sign a CLA before contributing to any Eclipse project they are not a committer on.
