Subject Re: [MENTORS] ICLA for non-committer contributions
Date Fri, 27 Jan 2017 21:46:17 GMT
While it certainly doesn’t hurt to have one, it’s not strictly required. It *is* required
for committers though.

When you merge a pull request, the authorship information is maintained. Just make sure you
don’t squash other people’s commits.
