I don't think that's entirely right.  The CCLA is optional, it's there
to explicitly state that the company is allowing the employees to
contribute work that the company might otherwise claim ownership of.

The person signing the iCLA already asserts that s/he either owns or
has permission to contribute the work.  Likewise the committer who
adds it to ASF source control must make clear where it came from.

Can someone run this by the group at the ASF that has been working
with GIT for a while and see how other projects are handling this?

[For the 20-line patch/new class that started all this... an iCLA from
the author and an attachment in JIRA with the checkbox would be the
quickest way to get it accepted while you sort out how pull requests
should be handled.]
