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

* 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?
