While this is true, note that the main objection to CLAs is that it limits
the potential field of contributors. One of the other things that *also*
substantially limits the field of contributors is an upstream who is
confrontational and difficult to work with. I'm not sure systemd can
claim the unambiguous high ground here.
It would be nice to have an alternative that has neither of those
problems, but I don't think there is one that's in widespread use and
hence getting the benefit of concentrated development.
