I am confident that an organization that avoids collecting CLAs of any
flavor and accepts licenses to code via e-mail declarations is not getting
any copyrights from anyone [;<).
Non sequitur. The form used to collect such declaration is irrelevant to the
TDF does not require Copyright Assignment/CLA. It is a conscious choice.
A verbal contract as as much force-of-law than a written one. An
email-declaration of license, especially published in a public and archived
mailing-list is just as good as a paper one mailed somewhere. at least with
the former everybody is privy to the actual contact, no secret 'grant' that
can't/won't be disclosed publicly...
