+Asserting the right to supply a change
+Any change you supply to Gitano or its associated projects will end up under
+the licence terms of that project. Typically that is either an ISC-like
+licence, or a Creative Commons licence for documentation and images. In order
+to do this there any any number of ways, but the one simplest and easiest
+to achieve is to use the `Signed-off-by` feature of Git's commits. If you
+submit commits which have this in, then the project will take those statements
+to mean that you understand the licence terms in play and that you have the
+right to license the content of the commits in that way.
