Take a look at the definition of "Contribution" inside the CLA

   "Contribution" shall mean any original work of authorship,
   including any modifications or additions to an existing work, that
   is intentionally submitted by You to the Foundation for inclusion
   in, or documentation of, any of the products owned or managed by
   the Foundation (the "Work").

The code committed to github has not been "intentionally submitted to
the Foundation".
