Does this imply that projects hosted at pagure.io require all
contributors to have agreed to the FPCA?
Broader question which I only bring up since I have the opportunity
do we really need the FPCA anymore for anything?
I don't see why projects on pagure.io need to require FPCA. It's
perfectly possible to create a FAS account and not sign the FPCA. And
pagure.io has several projects that are independent of Fedora itself,
so it would be really dumb to force that. Now, if projects under a
"Fedora" namespace on pagure.io want to do that, that's up to them.
But I definitely do not want to see FPCA enforced globally on
As an aside, Fedora and non-Fedora things are jumbled up in pagure.io,
and someone should really sort that out...
