Why do I need to sign a contributor agreement?

By signing the contributor agreement, our contributors have explicitly accepted the terms of the Apache 2.0 license and transferred copyright ownership of their contribution to Grameen Foundation.  The contributor agreement provides the community the assurance that there won’t be future legal disputes over origin and ownership of individual contributions. The agreement clearly defines how intellectual property has been contributed to project and ensures that users can use Mifos without concern that they’ll be asked to stop using pieces of the code in the future.  Signing only takes a minute so don’t skip the fine print and make sure to sign the contributor agreement.
