There's a checkbox in Jira.  Moreover, the license itself says that if 
you intentionally submit code to an Apache-licensed codebase then you 
implicitly license it under the Apache license, so that checkbox is 
mostly about permitting folks to post things that are not meant to be 
contributions.  And, finally, yes, there's a formal process.  Individual 
contributors and contributing institutions are encouraged to file a 
Contributor License Agreement (CLA) for substantial contributions. 
Committers are required to have filed a CLA.
