Participant Agreement Status

You're likely on this page because a GitHub status check on a pull request you submitted was unable to associate you to a signed and verified agreement. Read on to find out what that's about, and the details of your situation.


The Participant Agreement must be signed for all contributions to WHATWG Living Standards.

Contributors who work in the field of web technologies as an employee, contractor, or agent of another person or legal entity must have that entity fill out the agreement. Otherwise, it can be filled out as an individual.

After an agreement is submitted, it is verified by the WHATWG. This is a manual process, but is usually completed quickly if it's preventing a pull request from being accepted.

Your Status

@tkent-google does not appear to have signed the agreement, or be associated with an entity that has done so. Please sign it, or forward it to an authorized representative!

If you think you are associated with an entity that has signed up to participate, then ensure that you have publicly displayed your affiliation with that entity's GitHub organization. For more information on how to do this, see the GitHub help article, "Publicizing or hiding organization membership".
