If this is private work done on your own
time then you don't need to send in the
contributors agreement. In fact it's
better for us if you don't, as it's
then your copyright on the code, not
your companies copyright (which we
prefer :-).

If it's work done for your company, then
send in the agreement.

Thanks !
