[Fedora-legal-list] Google compute engine + trusted testers

Greetings legal@,

I've been working on the behalf of the cloud WG to get Fedora images built for Google's new compute engine platform. As part of this work, Google has asked interested people (Red Hat employees or not) to join their 'trusted tester' program. Here's the program described by Google: 'As a Google Trusted Tester, you can be part of an exclusive group that helps improve our products by providing candid feedback and identifying problems before anyone else gets to use them.' This allows people working on the images to get access to more advanced features of GCE to upload and test them using features that might not yet be available. I have the full document if anyone is interested in seeing it (I'm weary of publishing the whole thing to this list), but the gist is that it's a confidentiality agreement and indemnification/limitation of liability document.

So...is it permissible to ask Fedora contributors to sign this document? I'm happy to provide any additional information or connect a representative of the legal team with contacts at Google.

-Sam
