No, that's not how it works.  Changing the license terms for contributions 
posted to the mailing list to only be X11 licensed (for example) would mean 
that we may not be able to commit it to the tree under the ALv2 license.

For example, if someone (not a committer) submits a patch to the mailing 
list and you have switched the list's licensing terms to X11 (which does 
not include patent protections), it then means that I can't commit that 
patch to our tree without requiring a *separate* authorization under ALv2. 
However, if the mailing list is as defined in ALv2, then the act of 
contributing grants the necessary terms.  -- justin
