This Agreement states the terms and conditions under which User may use http://redfish.dmtf.org/redfish/portal, hereafter called the “Redfish Community Publication Portal”.

The Redfish Community Publication Portal is a repository of various information that might include any of the following: DMTF schema, data, text, computer code, reports, and other materials relating to DMTF schema, its other standards and services, as well as third-party schema and content that has been voluntarily deposited by contributors for publication (collectively, the "Contribution(s)"). Agreeing to be bound to all terms and conditions of this Agreement is a precondition to requesting publication of any Contribution(s).
DMTF reserves the right to amend this Agreement at any time at its sole discretion without prior notice. User should check this Agreement each time User uses the Redfish Community Publication Portal to determine if any changes have been made. If User uses the Redfish Community Publication Portal after the amended Agreement has been posted, User will be deemed to have agreed to the amended Agreement.
2. Eligible Contributors
In order to be eligible to deposit Contribution(s) to the Redfish Community Publication Portal, User must be either a DMTF Body, Member Company of DMTF, or an Alliance Partner of DMTF. Eligible Contributors may be expanded or restricted by DMTF in its sole discretion.

Other than these limited services, DMTF provides no other hosting services and, as discussed below, does not endorse or comment on the content, accuracy, or effectiveness of any Contribution(s). DMTF is under no obligation to post, publish, or use any Contribution(s) whatsoever, and DMTF may post or refuse to post or remove any Contribution(s) at any time in DMTF's sole discretion, without prior permission from User.
