I would remind you all that it's *very* necessary to make sure that
whatever finds its way into released code is indeed covered by
contributor agreements. The PSF (as the guardian of the IP) has to
ensure this, and so we have to find a way of ensuring that all
contributions to source are correctly logged against authors in a
traceable way.
