Subject Re: Accepting patches in a podling

So each patch /must/ go via JIRA and get some checkbox filled?

1. Over at Subversion, the practice has been to just say thankyou and
commit the patches.  A few times, with large-scale contributions (eg:
someone sent us an SQL backend), we have required filing an ICLA first
--- but that has been needed VERY rarely. 

2. So patch submitters get sent to JIRA just so they can /fill a
checkbox/?  Never mind what the license says about submissions to the
mailing lists, why not simply ask them to write

	"I license the patch attached herewith under the Apache License, version 2.0" 

at the top of their email?  That's much less effort for them than filing
a JIRA.  And imposing less work on patch submitters is Good.
