I still have no idea what "CLAHub" is, but FWIW, the fundamental
requirement is that we need to get one particular copyright assignment
signed and we don't want to trust anyone but the FSF to verify (and store)
this paperwork (especially not a company whose incorporation bylaws make
its aim to be maximizing profits rather than preserve the users's Freedom).

I can't see how it could be otherwise.
