In most cases (simple bug fixes and the like) I certainly can't see there being legal issues.
Anything large would need to contributor at a minimum to sign a CLR and may need to be checked
if is actually allowed to be donated eg companies usually own IP of code written by employees.
I'm sure this will be discussed on the list on a case by case basis.

Misunderstanding on my part there. I thought the discussion was about changes in general not
changes to files that have yet to be donated. I think we got a little bit off track as nothing
has actually been submitted/patched so far it was just discussion on potential changes. I
understand your concerns re working on files before they have been donated.
