I wanted to send out a general but brief update on relicensing as holiday
season (at least in my part of the world) approaches.
(If you don't know what the relicensing effort is, or want background, see
our website: http://llvm.org/foundation/relicensing/)
First off, a huge thank you to everyone who has gone through the
relicensing form and individual agreement. We are making fantastic
progress, with well over 500 individual agreements completed. This covers
over 73% of committers and over 80% of commits in the last 6 months, and
over 63% of committers and over 74% of commits in the last 2 years.
But we need to get these higher, so if you haven't already....
*Please send me the best holiday gift you can by filling out the agreement
We plan to install the new developer policy on *January 14th*, at which
point commit access will be disabled for anyone not covered by an agreement.
We have emailed every committer in the last 6 months who hasn't gone
through the form twice about this already, and will be sending weekly
emails from now until the switch happens.
We have emailed every committer in the last 2 years who hasn't gone through
the form once, and will send at least two more direct emails before the
Also, please, if at all possible, *sign the agreement as part of this*.
While you may in fact be 100% certain that all of your contributions are
owned by your employer, in many cases the LLVM Foundation will end up
having to verify this which is a very expensive operation and may
significantly delay us confirming that you are covered so we can restore
And last but not least, if relevant, please forward the information on our
relicensing page to your current employer as we will need to get them to
sign the corporate agreement by January as well:
(Note that companies that have already signed or we are in active
discussions with are listed.)
Thank you again to everyone who has helped with this, is working with their
employers to get these things taken care of, and who has gone through the
individual agreement process.
