Fortunately this *can be discussed at the members' meeting. Since I don't always follow python-dev I wasn't aware this was blocking commits - the process is pretty straightforward as it is. Guido established the Foundation to do what it's doing, but we would love to do it more efficiently. But anyone with access to a fax machine or a scanner can submit a contributor agreement very simply.
However, specific ideas about how to action this request are also welcome. We certainly don't want to hold up development. Unfortunately we want encumbered code even less.

Ok, so, since the PSF appears to have a meeting very soon, can I request that the PSF gets its act together and solves the "electronic contributor agreement" issue once and for all?
The way we core developers are prevented from working properly is **totally** unacceptable.

What is the process now? Is it a showstopper?
Developers uploading copyrightable patches to the tracker need to sign the contributor agreement before those patches can make it into the core - even before they get direct commit rights.
Otherwise, the PSF does not have the right to redistribute that code under the PSF license.

I have not received a contributor agreement for Ross Lagerwall yet. It maybe in transit at this point. However, if the need arises another can be sent directly to me at:

Do we have a signed contributor agreement?
I've told Ross it would be nice to send one if he
so, but I have obviously no way of checking whether
