I’m a FOSS contributor and a regular user of Open Hub. How do the new data license and Terms of Use affect me?

The most important change is to the terms under which you contribute content such as project descriptions, tags, and links to Open Hub. Now, under our new Terms of Use, you make your inbound contributions under the same license we are using for outbound licensing. We need you to contribute under CC-BY to grant us all the rights we need to operate Open Hub and offer this resource to the community. You retain the copyright to your contributions, but license them to us under the same liberal license under which we offer Open Hub data to the world.
