We can be lenient about this: we don't require CLA signoff for casual 
contributors as we do due diligence ourselves. We must obtain a CLA 
from regular contributors. The switch in Jira is nice but it doesn't 
cover everything anyhow, and there's many other contributions methods 
which require IP oversight by the committers.

Yes. Jeff Turner implemented this specifically in Jira for the ASF - 
i's not part of Jira proper.

As you can see from that page, it requires quite a bit of work.

I think obtaining a CLA from proper document committers should be 
enough for the mean time. Let's see where we get from here.
