Unfortunately, that question was never fully answered (or I forgot
what the answer was).

Yes, they do.

Not that I know of.

I think we do need something written; a lawyer may be able to tell
I still hope that we can record, in the tracker, which contributors have
signed an agreement.
> In these matters, Jython, as a project under the Python Software
> Foundation, intends to follow the same policy as CPython.
Please keep pushing. From this message alone, I find two questions
to the lawyer, and one (possibly two) feature requests for the bug
