Possible new CLA

There is a draft of a new CLA being circulated at FreeIPA:


I've asked Legal for a summary of what's changed and why, and an answer
to whether all Fedora contributors would need to re-execute this
agreement.  (I'm betting the answer to the last question is "yes," but
that's just an educated guess.)  I believe the changes to be minor,
mainly to eliminate loopholes and to make this process less onerous in
the future, but I'll wait for more information.

Ricky Zhou tells me that our CLA signing information is kept in the form
of a log table, not a simple date field.  AIUI then, we have the ability
to find out what CLAs have been executed over the life of an account.

If I'm correct about that, I want to say first, thanks for a really good
design. :-)

Second, since a new CLA is a possibility -- I just want to confirm that
we are not *overwriting* old CLA data, i.e. we would maintain a history
that user "johndoe" signed a CLA on 2007-10-15 and then again on
