I agree in general, and due diligence is specifically warranted for the case you cite here:
> often with software grants the license changes to ALv2 just before donation

So to narrow the conversation for this specific case:

The LICENSE file was added to the repo 2019-09-30 and all files in the repo had AL2.0 license
headers added on 2020-06-18. Only the "top two" had made contributions at this point; the
remaining 11 contributors submitted their contribution to files which already carried the
AL2 header at the time of their submission.

Accordingly, as those 11 contributors did not explicitly state their contribution was under
a different license, I do not think CLAs are required, no matter the size of their commits.

    Hi,

    While some of that conversation may apply here, and I don’t think there is any issues,
please note the conversation is in a slightly different context to a software grant. When
contributing to an ASF project it is clear under what terms you are contributing. When contributing
to a 3rd party repo it may not be clear, and often with software grants the license changes
to ALv2 just before donation or a whole lot of other things can occur.

    Kind Regards,
    Justin
