You mean that we need to go find every person that's ever put a patch
on JIRA and get them to sign a legal document? And how does this work
if someone points out a one liner to me on IRC? Or over my shoulder?
Or what if someone describes an idea for a feature and I implement it?

The more I ponder the legal ramifications of my interactions the more
I feel as though I should never read dev@ for fear that I unknowingly
introduce someone's intellectual property into SVN.

The scary part is I'm only half joking.
