We're not worrying about assigning copyright; for the same reasons Apache
does not. All we legally need is the right to sublicense the code under
the relevant license of the whole code base, in this case the Apache 1.1
license. We're considering submission of a patch or idea to this list or
the bug databases, etc., as an expression of such a license. We've known
that we can and we should get a more formal CLA like Apache has, to
protect against someone posting something here and then claiming later
that we don't have the right to integrate what they posted into
Subversion.
