Git provides makes it easy to wrap and indefinitely persist contributions along with metadata. Specifically, contributions delivered via Git are packed into commit records that include the identity of the contributor, dates, comments, etc.
+
 
+
Project information pages include a block that looks something like this:
+
 
+
[[Image:Contribute section.png]]
+
 
+
The very first paragraph contains a link to this page. Project-specific "how to contribute" pages provide a similar link.
+
 
+
==The Contribution==
+
 
+
The contribution must have the author field set to the contributor's credentials.
+
 
+
Further, the contribution my be "signed-off-by" the contributor using identical credentials; e.g.
+
Signed-off-by: Wayne Beaton <wayne@eclipse.org>
+
 
+
By signing off on a contribution, you assert that:
+
 
+
# I have authored 100% of the content I'm contributing
+
# I have the rights to donate the content to Eclipse
+
# I contribute the content under the EPL
