Contributors License Agreement (CLA)

GXF is covered by LFE's CLA. You have to sign/agree to it in order to commit changes. Most likely you will have to sign the individual agreement, unless you work for a licensed company.

Your pull request will detect if you haven't signed it yet and instructions are given on how to continue.

Developer Certificate of Origin (DCO)

GXF uses GitHub's DCO application, so you need to sign-off your commits.

Your pull request will detect if you haven't signed-off your commits and instructions are given on how to continue.

Command line

Just add -s to git commit ....

Note this is the lower case -s (short for --signoff).

With git merge ... you can add --signoff as the shorter -s is used to set the merge strategy.

Eclipse

In some versions of Eclipse you can click the button to "Add Signed-off-by" in the Git Staging view: DCO Eclipse

IntelliJ

In the commit toolwindow, click the settings icon and check the 'Sign-off commit' checkbox: DCO IntelliJ
