Re: [Linphone-developers] Easier ways to sign the Contributor Agreement

Hello Gautier,

The only contributor / developer agreements that I have signed were basically non-disclosure agreements.For those, I did download, print, sign, etc. So I do not see that as a problem.

I think what he meant by "state-of-the-art" was that this could be done through a web page where the user agrees to everything, checks a box that they've read and agree to it and submits (after authentication of some kind, usually a login).

Note that I am not saying this *should*--merely that it *could*--be done.

(BTW, I think I would like to sign this, too, even though it may be a little while before I can actually contribute anything. But I have some platforms that are not typical, so I think I might help.)

Hi Andrey,

I totally agree with you, this is a bit outdated. I am not aware of the current state-of-the-art status regarding automatic CA. If someone knows better way of handling that, knowing that github is *not* our main platform, I'd be glad to hear about it. Anyway it's in my todo to improve this, because this should not be the hard-part when contributing to Linphone... ;-)
