Aqua Security changes its Open Source Contributor License 

Aqua Security announced that it will be changing its contributor license agreement (CLA) in order to make the contributing process available to everyone interested. Previously, Trivy and CloudSploit were the only Aqua projects that had a CLA.

In addition, the previous CLA at Aqua was not corporate-friendly, making contributing a challenge for developers working for organizations that project their employees’ IP. These changes to Aqua’s contributor license work to simplify the CLA as well as introduce a corporate CLA and uniformly enforce the changes across its open source portfolio.
