Past communication that I have followed here stated that the CCLA is mainly a layer of protection
for the contributor and that all that the ASF cares about is actually the ICLA in which the
contributor states that he has the permission to contribute and to assign the rights stated
in the ICLA.

So if your contract already states this, the CCLA is probably redundant.
