As the project gets built out, we also anticipate that the site will include examples of the use of JSR 351 APIs, identity connectors and providers.
We welcome a range of contributions from the community. These include questions about the RI, use of the RI in other projects, testing and bug reports, software contributions such as innovative applications or new identity connectors and providers. To participate you must first establish a java.net account for yourself.
Commit access (the developer role) will be given on a meritorious basis based, in part, on a developers experience of and previous contributions to the project (a fair process adopted by many open source projects).
A more formal governance model will be put in place as the project moves forward. Please contact the site administrators for more information at this time.
The first step to contributing a patch (or to becoming a developer) is to complete and return Oracle Community Agreement (OCA). The completed form may be sent by email to to oracle-ca_us AT oracle DOT com.
The OCA (see detailed OCA FAQ here) gives Oracle and the contributor joint copyright interests in the code. The contributor retains copyrights while also granting those rights to Oracle as the project sponsor. You only need to sign the OCA once in order to cover all changes that you might contribute to any Oracle-sponsored open-source project including not just the Nobis project but also, for example, GlassFish and Metro.
