This is likely to be an ongoing issue, at least in my experience it is...

I resorted in the meantime to do sort of a periodic update to the CCLA
(sort of yearly) where I just add all the recent new contributors and
all the potential committers, just to be sure. I think given the proper
company culture there is no harm in including too many people in
the blanket CCLA...
(I wish there was a "joker" including all employees)
