Hello, my question is for any licensing experts on the list.
I would like to contribute code/fixes to the VCL project, but my employer
prevents me from signing the ICLA. The only FOSS license I can release code
under is the modified/new BSD license. I am wondering if there is any way
for me to contribute code to VCL under this restriction.
I have noticed that VCL's web front end code contains a distribution of
Dojo, which is BSD (or AFL) licensed, and there are several other
components with different licensing requirements in, or otherwise required
by, the project.
The code I would most like to contribute is highly self-contained (a
full-featured KVM provisioning module with power_* functions, uses OS
functions, etc). Could it be released separately under a BSD license and
somehow included or merged into VCL?
What about for other, less self-contained code, such as fixes?
Thanks, and please forgive my licensing ignorance; I'm a dev, not a lawyer.
