An approach I doubt will hold up in a court of law. We require and have wet 
signatures, which makes me feel a lot more "on the safe side".

Done by a contributor with some clear gesture from the non-contributor that 
code ownership is going into the hands of that contributor.

Speaking for myself as ZF representative, it is my duty to make sure that chain 
of custody for the code is upheld and safeguarded. Convenience, which I feel is 
driving the move towards GitHub, is nice to have. But I would not do my job if 
I didn't make extra-sure that any move for Zope Foundation code did not fulfil 
all legal requirements before spending much thought on convenience.
