This is the reason that CLAs are not in SVN: both signatures (where they are 
provided) and addresses seemed like information that we would be better off
not publishing.

I don't have a better suggestion right now, but that was the original reason.

The record keeping process is a bit opaque to me at this point, and I think it would benefit us in the future to have a more accessible place for these documents.  I assume we forward signed copies to OSGeo, but maintaining them next to the code makes sense to me as well.
