<h1>Eclipse Contributor Agreement</h1>
<p>Version 3.1.0&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;January 14, 2021</p>
<p id="reference">
<strong>This is a reference copy of the terms of the Eclipse Contributor Agreement. To actually complete
and submit an ECA, please go to the <a href="">ECA form</a>.</strong>
<p>Thank you for your interest in one or more projects managed by the Foundation, Inc. and/or the Eclipse Foundation AISBL (collectively, &quot;Eclipse&quot;). In order for You (as defined below) to make intellectual property
Contributions (as defined below) now or in the future to Eclipse projects,
You must agree to this Eclipse Contributor Agreement (&quot;ECA&quot;).
If You have any questions about this agreement, licensing, or anything related to
intellectual property at Eclipse, please send an email to
<a href=""></a>.
<p>Please read this ECA carefully before accepting its terms. By accepting the ECA, You are agreeing to
be bound by its terms. If You want to accept this ECA, complete the form completely, print a copy for
Your records, and when ready, press the &ldquo;Accept&rdquo; button at the end of this form.
<p>As used in this ECA: (i) &ldquo;You&quot; (or &quot;Your&quot;) shall mean the entity that
is making this Agreement with Eclipse; (ii)&quot;Contribution&quot; shall mean
any original work of authorship, including any modifications or additions to an existing work,
that is submitted by You to Eclipse for inclusion in, or documentation of, any of
the Eclipse projects; and (iii) &ldquo;Submit&rdquo; (or &ldquo;Submitted&rdquo;) means
any form of communication sent to Eclipse (e.g. the content You post on electronic
mailing lists, forums, content management systems, source code control systems, code review systems,
issue tracking systems, etc. that are used by Eclipse).
<p>This agreement applies to all Contributions You Submit.</p>
<p>This ECA, and the license(s) associated with the particular Eclipse projects You
are contributing to, provides a license to Your Contributions to Eclipse and
downstream consumers, but You still own Your Contributions, and except for the licenses provided
for in this ECA, You reserve all right, title and interest in Your Contributions.
In addition to the above, You grant a non-exclusive, worldwide, perpetual, royalty-free
license of all necessary rights under Your copyright in and to Your Contributions (the &ldquo;Specification
Grant&rdquo;): (a) for Eclipse (and its contributors solely as a part of Eclipse projects)
to create, reproduce, prepare derivative works of, publicly display, publicly perform, distribute and
sublicense specifications subject to the terms of the then-current Eclipse Foundation Specification
License, based on or derived from the Specification Content (as defined below) and (b) for recipients of
such specifications to create, reproduce, and distribute implementations thereof based on the portion of
Your Contributions or material derived from them in the specifications, subject to the terms of
the then-current Eclipse Foundation Specification License.
<p>&ldquo;Specification Content&rdquo; is the collection of interface definitions for the application or user interfaces (&ldquo;Interfaces&rdquo;) provided by the work to which Your Contribution was made,
descriptions of the structure and semantic behavior of those Interfaces, and data formats and protocols
associated with those Interfaces, all of which as are reasonably necessary to enable the development of
independent implementations of those Interfaces. For the sake of clarity, Specification Content does
not include implementation detail of how the Eclipse project code or Your Contribution implements the
Interfaces in the Specification and the Specification Grant provided above would not cover such additional
<p>Eclipse requires that each Contribution You Submit now or in the future to comply with
