An important aspect of the Python Software Foundation`s mission is the management of intellectual property for the Python language. These include the source code for the Python interpreter`s C implementation, the default Python library, and all associated tools and documentation. To share source code and documentation for Python users, the PSF must have a valid license that gives us permission to do so. The licensing requirement applies to each contribution, so the FSP Board of Directors contacts all contributors to ensure that they have completed a contribution agreement. A CTC is designed to ensure that the custodian of the project results has the necessary ownership or the granting of rights to all contributions so that they can be distributed under the chosen license. In some cases, this means that the contributor cedes the copyright to all contributions to the project owner; in other cases, they grant an irrevocable license to allow the project manager to use the contribution.
CLAs also play a role in raising awareness of IPR issues within a project.  Our goal is to have 100% coverage, so if you brought a source code or documentation directly or via a fix in the problem tracker, make sure you have submitted a form. If you`re not sure about your condition, you can check your problem tracking account by logging in, then click on the “Your Details” link in the left sidebar. The account details page contains a “Receive a participation form” field indicating the date the form was filed. If the field says no agreement has been reached, please take a few minutes to complete and send the contribution contract. If you think you have already signed an agreement, but the tracker does not indicate it, contact firstname.lastname@example.org so we can check our records.
