contribution agreements for open source projects

Quite a few open-source projects are now requiring that contributors
sign agreements to give ownership or other rights in their
contributions to the project.  One prominent example is Sun's
Contributor Agreement

Can anyone recommend a website that compares the contribution
agreements used by different projects?  I'd like to use one for my
project, but I'd like to consider the options so I can make an
informed choice.
