Richard, How does that work exactly? if there's less than 15 lines per commit is it all fine? Or do you have to actually sum up all the lines of all commits done by the author to verify if he wrote a non trivial part of the program and thus the legal paperwork procedure should be triggered?

What matters for the purpose of legal papers is the amount of code,
rather than the number of commits.
