I don't think this went to the list. It is my opinion that the git and svn
repositories for our guides be included in the new requirements so that we make sure that
contributions are properly licensed.

From the Fedora Individual Contributor License Agreement (ICLA) to the
Fedora Project Contributor Agreement (FPCA). We have reached the
for current contributors to have signed the new FPCA and are working to
remove users who have signed the ICLA but not the FPCA from Fedora
where they must have signed the FPCA.
In looking through the list of groups that are affected, we noticed
many of the affected groups are fedorahosted groups. Fedorahosted
not have a requirement to sign the FPCA from our side; the individual
projects may make their contributors sign our contributor agreement,
own contributor agreement, or no contributor agreement at all. In most
cases, we believe that these hosted groups were created with a default
signing our contributor agreement and then never changed.
In order to minimize the disruption that Fedora switching from the ICLA
the FPCA will cause, we have removed the need for members of these
have signed the FPCA(list of groups attached). This will allow those
members to remain in the hosted groups unless futher action is taken.
If you do want to require all of your contributors to have a
agreement_ with the Fedora Project, then you may follow these
for re-adding that as a requirement.
== Requiring that a Fedora contributor agreement has been signed ==
1) Make sure that you, at least, have signed the FPCA (or another valid
contributor agreement) so there is at least one administrator in the
group who has signed the FPCA.
2) Go to https://fedorahosted.org/fedora-infrastructure/
3) Click the login link and login using your fas username and password
4) Click on the new ticket link
5) Create a ticket of Type: change
6) In the body of the ticket, state that you wish to have everyone who
not in the cla_done group removed from this group and have future group
members sign the FPCA in order to be added.
7) Set the Component to "Hosted Projects"
8) Submit the ticket.
A member of the infrastructure team will process the request.
In the future these steps will likely be integrated into the Fedora
System Web interface but currently the ticketing process is required as
infrastructure member has to do some steps manually.
