Interesting! I signed the Yahoo CLA a long time ago, you had to actually swap emails with somebody.

Mozilla has a mozilla-central-centric process for becoming a committer[1], which includes signing something CLA-ish[2]. I never actually did this until I needed access to the Mozilla build infrastructure for FxOS work, though.

Dunno how webdev projects have handled CLAs in general. Anybody have thoughts here?
