Should the board do something with contributor agreements and if so,

I also think that the current GNOME copyright assignments policy is very well written, encouraging contributions and answering community's expectations. As a community and non-profit organization, I would tend to oppose giving up one's copyright unless there is a definite and tangible proven value to it, which the community also feels it's needed.
