Okay. I assumed legal consequences could be summarized to what
you just wrote.
Sounds plausible.

However this leads to another question we should write about:
if someone on a regular basis provides code to the gnunet repository,
at which point do we decide that this needs a CAA? Is there a threshold?
How do we define "trivial patches" (I think we mention this on the
contributions page)?
Can a regular contributor be someone who does not sign the CAA or
will the step to regular contribution always lead to the CAA?
I'm asking really obvious questions here not from my perspective,
because these are questions people might have and we should answer
