IANAL, but why would you need a CLA for a minor bug fix or small  
patch? For copyright to form, the item needs to be long and complex  
enough to be recognized as original - a few lines don't a copyrighted  
work make.

With JSPWiki, we took CLAs from major contributors (of which there  
were over 20, that was quite a job) when they were identifiable, and  
rewrote the sections which didn't have an identifiable author or for  
which CLA could not be obtained.
