Non-trivial contributors, yes.

Currently, for code to get into Gelpa it needs to be manually commited
by someone with push access. Gelpa (and Emacs) thus work on the
assumption that those with push access will only push code that they
have authored, or code that they were told was authored by someone with
an assignment on file.
