Every contributor must sign a copyright assignment in order to have his code accepted. This rule is intended to protect the project, and avoid copyright conflicts in the future. Through this assignment, though, we leave the author all the rights for doing whatever he find appropriate with his code while protecting the community by assigning the Copyright to the project.
Currently, we are trying to gather funds to officially creating an Organization for taking care of Umit, but before that we can't assign a copyright to it. The solution we found was to assign all copyrights to the original author of Umit, Adriano Monteiro Marques, and at the time of creating the Organization he will be assigning all the copyrights to the Organization.
