You raise a good point. I know of at least one person at EMC who submitted
a patch to kyua, but then could not get it accepted because of the need for
signing the Google Contributor License Agreement. Getting permission from
EMC to sign the Google CLA proved to be an uphill battle.
I actually signed the Google CLA for kyua last year. However, this week,
Julio informed me that Google transferred all CLA from one database to
another, and in the process they lost my signed agreement!! So Julio asked
me to sign again. This is annoying.
ATF/Kyua are Julio's things, so ideally, he would be the one to change the
licensing and signature requirements. However, since he is a Google
employee, he has some rules which he must follow.
Other than that I don't see what can be done, other than some type of fork
of the kyua project or a rewrite of the code under a different license.
