[REMINDER] Only 20 more days before GAP term is over

Kohsuke Kawaguchi

As some of you might already know, Sun is currently running the
GlassFish Award Program (GAP) [1], and Hudson is a part of it.

In Hudson's context, GAP means "contribute something to Hudson and win
some cold hard cash." Roughly speaking there are two categories in this
program. Once is a contribution (like plugins or docs or anything else
around Hudson) and the other is for bug reports. Both has substantial
prize values --- contributions start from $4000 and up to $20000, and
bug reports is $500 each.

You can see the current submissions at [2], and one thing you can
quickly infer is that the low number of submissions makes it very likely
that your submissions will win a prize. For example, there are up to 100
winners in the bug report category, but today we only have 23
submissions. On contribution front, there are up to 23 prizes and only
22 submissions. So my understanding is that a good quality submission is
very likely to win.

So please consider submitting your contribution in any form to this.
There really is no reason not to do so. Note that bug reports are up to
5 per person and a contribution is 1 per person, so if you are doing
many plugins, for example, consider bundling it like Ullrich did.

For contribution entries, you can submit now, even if your work is not
fully completed yet.


For more details, please read the rules [3] more carefully --- in the
past I made a wrong interpretation, so I could be doing it again.

The rules say: "(if applicable) must have signed the Sun Contributor
Agreement at the time the Entry is submitted"

Is the SCA applicable for Hudson ?

Good question. I guess it does.

I'd imagine the idea is that Sun wants to jointly own the copyright so
that it can bring it to the community and build on top of the
submissions. Or put another way, I guess it's a formal way of defining
the minimum requirement for a contribution.

I mean, if I write an extension in a license that prohibits
redistribution, then that shouldn't count. SCA guarantees that Sun can
release it under the same license terms as the rest.

Do you feel that it's unreasonable?

No, it's just that the rules say that the SCA has to be signed at the
time of the entry submission. So this is something else that we only
have 20 days for...

Cool, I didn't hear about it but I've submitted the Rake plugin just in case.
