parabola can't take responsibilities by itself, since it doesn't exist
as a legal entity (we may be scamming CC too :P)

i think any deal with CC would have to be between CC and individual
parabola hackers, but any possible liability would have to be discussed
collectively beforehand :)

IMO it should be clear that:

* parabola hackers only develop a certain set of features needed by the
  CC project. afaict it's just about the bootloader for some arm boards,
  whose resulting patches may be applicable to the bootloaders for other
  distros?

* parabola as a project can't be responsible for anything nor receives
  any payment.

* parabola hackers hired for this job can't be responsible for anything
  else than develop the certain set of features (i don't know how to
  phrase it, i guess it's the standard limitation of liability /
  warranty from licenses.)

* any patch or software developed must be released under a free software
  license.  if it's a patch, under the same license of the upstream
  project, if it's software, under a copyleft license.

do you think this is correct or missing anything?
