In the previous version of MySQL Forge, it was possible to submit a CLA by entering some personal information and agreeing to the terms of the agreement by mouse click from http://forge.mysql.com/contribute/contributor-agreement.ph

However, this page has disappeared after the Forge Update, albeit it was still referenced from the Wiki page at http://forge.mysql.com/wiki/Community_Contributions.

This means that potential contributors currently can now agree to the CLA terms.

How to repeat:
Check the link above, notice that the page no longer exists.

Suggested fix:
Re-add the missing page again, so contributors can agree to the terms of the CLA

Thank you for the report.

Link http://forge.mysql.com/contribute/cla.php is exists. And "Contributor license agreement" link from http://forge.mysql.com/wiki/Community_Contributions links to the page above. So I close the report as "Can't repeat" as I think you just did misprint. Please reopen the report if I misunderstood you.

Hi Sveta, thanks for verifying my report. I should have mentioned that I updated the link on the Wiki page in the meanwhile - the link now points to the actual text of the CLA, but this page does not contain the functionality to submit an agreement to the CLA. So this functionality is currently missing. Thanks!

Thank you for the feedback.

Verified as described.

The wiki now displays a link to add/submit a CLA, as does the main license view page:
