Subject: [legal-discuss] Orange SA : Openstack contribution's process for a supplier of Orange

Dear Mr/Mrs/Ms,

Your address was giving to me by Stefano Maffulli (OpenStack Foundation). Pleased find, attached to this email, my exchange with Stefano.

I'm writing because we signed a CCLA in July or August 2013 with OpenStack (see the documents signed attached to this email) in order to contribute to the community and we are working with a supplier which will be a contributor in the OpenStack community. So we would this supplier contributes directly and on behalf of Orange to your Community. Therefore, Orange has done everything with its supplier in order to give it the rights to contribute on behalf of Orange SA. By the way, we have read within the CCLA (item 4 in the CCLA signed by Orange, pleased find my attached file on this email) this sentence : "You represent further that each employee of the Corporation designated on Schedule A below (or in a subsequent written modification to that Schedule) is authorized to submit Contributions on behalf of the Corporation." You talk about "employees of the Corporation" but what does it means about an employee of a supplier of Orange SA? Supposing that supplier has all the rights by Orange to contribute on behalf of Orange within OpenStack community. Is it possible to add directly the name and the address (email, phone etc.) of the employee(s) of the supplier in the Orange SA's contributors CLA list?

Thank you for your help and do not hesitate to ask us if you require any further informations.


Christophe Martinez.
