Unfortunately, few projects post them.
My personal view is that asking your contributors to license their
stuff under the existing project license is plenty, unless you are a
mega-project and actually expect to fend off lawsuits.
If I read "upcoming" in [the newspaper] John Cowan
once more, I will be downcoming http://www.ccil.org/~cowan
and somebody will be outgoing. cowan at ccil.org
