We do offer to store code assignment and code contribution documents in
the OSGeo SVN; however, many projects do not require such documents and making
this into a requirement would be a big change.

We can contemplate requirement contribution agreements for all projects,
but we have been over this ground in great detail before and I would want
quite a compelling reason to revisit it.
