The Eclipse Contributor Agreement

Since Jetty is a member of the Eclipse Foundation, all contributors must first sign the Eclipse Contributor Agreement (ECA) before their code changes can be merged into source. The Eclipse Foundation maintains an ECA FAQ with more information about the ECA’s provisions.

Before you set up your local development environment, we recommend creating an account at and submitting your signed ECA. Follow the instructions on the Eclipse wiki for details on how to create your account and sign the ECA.

Make sure your emails match
== The email address you use to sign the ECA must be the same as the email you use to sign your git commits. ==

Jetty’s build process has a git hook that verifies each incoming pull request is signed with an email address with an active ECA. If the git hook cannot verify your email, the Jetty committers cannot do anything to accept your commit.
