I'm not sure where this meme comes from, but an ICLA is only desired,
not required, for normal contributions [1]:

    The ASF desires that all contributors of ideas, code, or documentation
    to the Apache projects complete, sign, and submit (via postal mail, fax
    or email) an Individual Contributor License Agreement (CLA). The purpose
    of this agreement is to clearly define the terms under which intellectual
    property has been contributed to the ASF and thereby allow us to defend
    the project should there be a legal dispute regarding the software at
    some future time. A signed CLA is required to be on file before an
    individual is given commit rights to an ASF project.

As mentioned above, a CLA is only required for committers. Smaller
contributions are already covered by section 5 of ALv2 [2].
