Not quite, no. You simply have to ask them to sign the 
copyright paperwork. Most people are willing to do that in my experience. 


My point isn’t that people aren’t willing sign the copyright agreement in principle, but that many people will not be thrilled to

deal with a *paper* copyright agreement that they have to send via standard mail and wait for a couple of weeks to get

back a response, just to get a tiny fix/change accepted. I think that GNU projects would benefit a lot from a contributor agreement that can be

signed digitally. (Clojure’s development recently switched to digital contributor agreements and the number of people who signed the agreement skyrocketed).

People hate dealing with paperwork and that’s a fact of life...
