Really? That could be a real problem for getting folks to contribute to 
the docs. It implies that, even to make a spelling correction, they 
would need to submit a CLA.

There must be some other mecahnism in place otherwise we would not be 
able to accept patches from non-committers. Can we not just follow the 
model now used in JIRA? I suppose the difference is that once in the 
Daisy repository, even in draft state, the contribution can be viewed as 
being in the Apache version control system.

Hmmmm... this seems like it may be a problem.

How difficult would it be to make Daisy submit a patch to JIRA rather 
than creating a new version (when the editor is not a "document 
committer") and subsequently to allow a patch to be applied via the 
Daisy interface?
