6To make a contribution to a TianoCore project, follow these steps.\r
71. Create a change description in the format specified below to\r
8 use in the source control commit log.\r
92. Your commit message must include your "Signed-off-by" signature,\r
10 and "Contributed-under" message.\r
113. Your "Contributed-under" message explicitly states that the\r
12 contribution is made under the terms of the specified\r
13 contribution agreement. Your "Contributed-under" message\r
14 must include the name of contribution agreement and version.\r
15 For example: Contributed-under: TianoCore Contribution Agreement 1.0\r
16 The "TianoCore Contribution Agreement" is included below in\r
17 this document.\r
184. Submit your code to the TianoCore project using the process\r
19 that the project documents on its web page. If the process is\r
20 not documented, then submit the code on development email list\r
21 for the project.\r
225. It is preferred that contributions are submitted using the same\r
23 copyright license as the base project. When that is not possible,\r
24 then contributions using the following licenses can be accepted:\r
25 * BSD (2-clause): http://opensource.org/licenses/BSD-2-Clause\r
