GearVRf Developer Certificate of Origin

Gear DCO and signed-off-by process

The GearVRf project uses the signed-off-by language and process used by the Linux kernel, to give us a clear chain of trust for every patch received.

 

GearVRf Developer's Certificate of Origin 1.0

By making a contribution to this project, I certify that:

(a) The contribution was created in whole or in part by me and I have the right to submit it under the open source license indicated in the file; or

(b) The contribution is based upon previous work that, to the best of my knowledge, is covered under an appropriate open source license and I have the right under that license to submit that work with modifications, whether created in whole or in part by me, under the same open source license (unless I am permitted to submit under a different license), as indicated in the file; or

(c) The contribution was provided directly to me by some other person who certified (a), (b) or (c) and I have not modified it.

(d) I understand and agree that this project and the contribution are public and that a record of the contribution (including all personal information I submit with it, including my sign-off) is maintained indefinitely and may be redistributed consistent with this project, under the same open source license.

 

Using the Signed-Off-By Process

We have the same requirements for using the signed-off-by process as the Linux kernel. In short, you need to include a signed-off-by tag in every patch:

"Signed-off-by:" this is a developer's certification that he or she has the right to submit the patch for inclusion into the project. It is an agreement to the Developer's Certificate of Origin (above). Code without a proper signoff cannot be merged into the mainline.

You should use your real name and email address in the format below:
