>>       including but not limited to communication on electronic
>>       mailing lists, source code control systems, and issue tracking

>>       distributed by the Project:
>>       (a) a perpetual, non-exclusive, worldwide, fully paid-up,

>>       prepare derivative works of, publicly display, publicly

>>       the license granted in this section, you reserve all right,
>>       title and interest in and to your Contributions.
>>    3. Reciprocity. As of the date any such litigation is filed, your
>>       patent grant shall immediately terminate with respect to any
>>       party that institutes patent litigation against you (including
>>       a cross-claim or counterclaim in a lawsuit) alleging that your
>>       Contribution, or the work to which you have contributed,
>>       constitutes direct or contributory patent infringement.

>>       has waived such rights for your Contributions to the Project,
>>       or that your employer has executed a separate Corporate CLA
>>       with the Project.
>>    5. You represent that each of your Contributions is your original
>>       creation (see section 7 for submissions on behalf of others).
>>       You represent that your Contribution submission(s) include
>>       complete details of any third-party license or other
>>       restriction (including, but not limited to, related copyright,

>>       which are associated with any part of your Contribution.

>>       provide support for free, for a fee, or not at all. Your
