I'd argue for dropping a CLA, it only raises the barrier to contribute 
without much benefit for the project.

I've recently retracted my pull requests to the protobuf project because 
they require a CLA before considering the contributions. If you require 
me to sign a legal document before accepting my patches, I choose not to 
contribute to your project. The effort is simply not worth it.

Kind Regards,
