I suggest using a BSD-style licence as default, but the attached one
is not one. Do we have other stuff under FBSD-doc terms?

I will help with this, if you wish. I think I know how to get
today's contributors (webwml group) and any since the current
CVS started (cvs history and logs) but how to get 'em all?

I suggest shortening this period.

Just seek a licence, rather than assignment.

I don't understand why you think a contract is formed, as
the contributor is not getting anything in exchange for their
work. However, it seems a good idea for SPI to assert a copyright
interest in the work.
