I agree.  I can make up my own reasons for why it would be good, but

Can you be more specific on the details of the process?  Is there more
to it than opening an issue on the project's issue tracker?  Is there
a public list of people who have signed copyright or do you typically
just rgrep NEWS/AUTHOR file(s)?

As Eli points out, it would be good to have an "official" reasoning
spelled out, also to point to if opening issues.
