To become a contributor, an individual must fax in the ICLA (Individual
Contributor License Agreement) which can be found at
http://www.apache.org/licenses/icla.txt . When your name shows up on the
web page at http://people.apache.org/committer-index.html#unlistedclas then
your ICLA has been registered, and you can have your name added to the
appropriate Jira projects so you can submit patches.
IBM is a Gold Sponsor of the Apache Software Foundation, so they have
already signed the CCLA (Corporate Contributor License Agreement), but each
individual contributor must also sign the ICLA.
