Well, contributors need to _know_ their contribution is going to be
licensed in that way, so I suppose this needs to be written down
somewhere. Something like:

| By posting to this {mailing list / issue tracker} a patch that does
| not carry a copyright notice, you agree to assign copyright to
| CollabNet. Further, by posting a patch that does not carry a
| copyright license, you agree that your work can be distributed under
| the same terms as Subversion.

Though I wonder if that's enforceable.
