The first one is old and was mainly used when we started to
ask for CLAs. It optionally also covers past contributions.

The second one is the one we currently use. It does not
have the clause to cover past contributions, since we now
expect contributors to sign the CLA before the contributions
go into the repository.

Could someone please arrange for the first URL to redirect to the
second one ?
