I have managed to push off our house closing to the end of the month, but if I do not have a job by the end of next week I will be another homeless veteran and my kids will be on the streets. We have nothing, will lose over $3,000 in earnest money, and our lease is ending. Openstack isn't working

2016-05-11 09:46:40 -0500 answered a question Does the company need to be a member of the foundation in order for employees to contribute code on behalf of the company?

Your company can pay to become a foundation member for a fee ($10k-25k annual,) but if your organization is not ready/able to commit all your employees are still eligible to become either community or foundation members. Membership is required to commit code, but all personnel are encouraged to become members including users and operators. The CCLA serves the same function as the ICLA required for each member, but allows the foundation and its membership to use any code contributed by your employees back to the community with no implied ownership by your organization. It simply ensures that you wont come back and sue Openstack for using your contributions, which you dont intend to do anyway or you wouldn't be contributing.

  1. If you intend to have employees contribute code to Openstack you need to complete the CCLA for them to do so legally.

  2. Any employee that touches Openstack in any aspect is encouraged to join the community/foundation, but only members who are actually submitting things are required to.

Does that help?
