Does LS or Apache -require- a CLA from one-time submitters?

>From http://www.apache.org/licenses/

"The ASF desires that all contributors of ideas, code, or documentation to the Apache projects
complete, sign, and submit (via snailmail or fax) an Individual Contributor License Agreement

Note the word 'desires'..

There is one case where a CLA is required: 

"A signed CLA is required to be on file before an individual is given commit rights to an
ASF project."

I'm not sure what other projects do, or if I'm misunderstanding the CLA requirement, but it
seems to me that it seems a bit overly-bureaucratic to require a faxed/mailed CLA of one-time
contributors (resulting in a corresponding reduction in individual contributions).
