It has always been obvious to me, but at the same time I can't clearly point to where it's written, that contributions to pkgsrc itself (the files checked in) are generally under a BSD license, either 2 or 3 clause. The status of patches to code under other licenses is less clear, but fairly clearly somewhere between BSD and the other project's license. A CLA, however, is something else. Are they asking people who submit patches to sign one, or is it just that they will accept patches under LGPL, or ?
