and it's not just the DB project, from http://www.apache.org/licenses/#clas

"The ASF desires that all contributors of ideas, code, or documentation
to the Apache projects complete, sign, and submit (via snailmail or fax)
a Individual Contributor License Agreement (CLA)"

So it's not "need" or "require", but "should" and "desire". Thus there
should be no problem in asking any contributor to sign a CLA. If they do
not, then, I guess we would have to look carefully at the contribution
to decide if it can be accepted without a CLA.
