Dear PJSIP developers,

I have a question concerning the Contributor Agreement
(http://trac.pjsip.org/repos/wiki/ContributionAgreement).

I have a build problem in PJSIP and found a patch to fix it on the repository of another open source project. The
original author does not seem to be interested in mainlining their fix.

I would like to send myself the patch but I'm not sure I'm allowed to do it because of the following sentence in the
agreement:

> With respect to your contribution, you represent that: [...]
> it is an original work

In this case I cannot state it is an original work. And if my
understanding is correct it would be illegal to apply the fix under the agreement, unless the original author wants to
submit it.

Am I correct?

How can I have the fix in upstream?

Thanks,
-- 
Luca
