What we *could* do though, is have a better explanation of the reasons
behind the relatively archaic process for submission of contributor

Alternatively, something that occurred to me is that every core dev
*must* set up SSH correctly to push changes. So why not have a text
version of the form and require people to push a signed copy of their
completed form as a text file to that repository before their access
to the main repository is switched on?

We're relying on the SSH keys to identify submitters of contributions,
so sure we could rely on them for the form sign-off as well...
