Are these Apache CLAs or different ones? I would think, for example,  
my Apache CLA would cover contributions once the code was at Apache  
but wouldn't apply to any contributions to date. I don't remember  
signing any other CLA-type thing.

Also I don't see James Strachan or Richard Monson-Haefel on the list  
below - is that just an oversight?
