The CLA form [1] includes e-mail address and it is not marked as
optional. What am I missing?

It should be easy to change that to make it clear that any field not
marked as optional is mandatory.

Mentor's should have access to the part of svn where the CLAs are filed
so they should be able to get the e-mail address from the CLA.

Also, the invited committer will have replied to the private list from a
valid e-mail address and the mentors will be subscribed to the private
list. So they already know the e-mail address for the new committer.
Again, I feel I am missing something. I don't see where / how the
disconnect you describe is happening.
