Given that we already have a policy on copyright assignments, I

Should the board do something with contributor agreements and if so,
what should be done?
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.
