There are a few other minor problems for me. For example, my last

reluctant to commit to doing that regularly.

What red tape?  Emacs is about the most red-tape-less project as you
can find, as far as the procedure of admitting a patch is considered.

If I want to contribute to Emacs, and I want to be good contributor, I

Are you saying that other comparable projects don't have similar

As you see, Emacs is the norm here, not the odd one out.

The LLVM project does not require copyright assignments, which means that the copyright for the code in the project is held by its respective contributors who have each agreed to release their contributed code under the terms of the LLVM License.
