Yes - but what's "required" is a complex subject

This is one of those areas that's difficult and time consuming for the
legal team to get right in enough detail to allow simple fixes. Unless
more volunteers step up to help, rejecting a release for minimality is
likely to mean a lengthy delay. In general, better to note points for
improvement and have the team fix them in trunk.
