 Think about how new people or people who was not interested in this topic can possibly know

Already agreed in other threads to documenting it, and I volunteered
to draft it.

However I disagree that this isn't a committer's responsibility to
know that licensing is a issue to raise early and often. Contributors
go through a review to help catch these things. Committer's have to
know how to behave. We can codify it (redundantly to the ASF docs),
but that's just a record to reference later. We have spent too much
time with this issue for anyone that's been around to have missed it.
