Why do you need me to sign this agreement?

To protect you, DataStax, and the users of the projects for which we are accepting contributions. The agreement also gives DataStax legal entitlement to distribute the contributed code.

I would like to talk to someone before I sign anything.

Sure thing. It is important to us that you fully understand the terms of the agreement. Please email us at and we will address your concerns to the best of our ability.
