'copyright licence'?  what's that?

this clause is intended to cover all submissions to the licensor
without having to explicitly execute any other document.  for
example, most (hopefully soon to be all) of the asf's committers
have submitted CLAs (contributor licence agreements) which basically
describe the terms of their submissions.  however, stuff that comes
in through the mailing lists or issue trackers in the form of
patches *isn't* covered by a cla.  this clause addresses that.
