I don't understand the relationship between AGPL and the need for a CLA.
Many free-software or open-source projects make their contributors sign a
CLA (even Docker asks PRs to contain a sign-off), this is completely
unrelated to using AGPL, BSD, or whatever. By the way, I didn't need to ask
Gabriel to sign the CLA because his contribution, although significative by
its impact, is not significative by the number of lines.
