There are several ways that you can participate in the OpenCode4Connections community as a developer or as an end-user of IBM Collaboration Solutions software, whether your preference is only to consume content, contribute content or take an active part in the running of OpenCode4Connections.
As a Consumer
Anyone is free to consume projects from OpenCode4Connections.org. The vast majority of projects are committed under the Apache License Version 2.0.
You do not need to log into the site to download content or fork a GitHub or Stash repository for your own development.
However, you will need to log on in order to:
add defects, write reviews or get involved in discussions about projects on OpenCode4Connections.org
If you fork an OpenCode4Connections Project from GitHub or Stash and wish to submit a pull request, you will need to become an official “Contributor”. This is required to keep the quality of the project. It can be done by being listed on your employer's Corporate Contributor License Agreement or executing Individual Contributor License Agreement. Send either of these signed documents to email@example.com.
It is free and easy to set up an OpenCode4Connections.org user account.
Note Any existing OpenNTF account holder is automatically enabled with the same user rights on OpenCode4Connections.org.
As a Contributor
