So could you please explain us why you think it is a *good* one ?  

The only benefits I see here are for OCamlPro's own IP rights.  

I see however a lot of disadvantages for the whole OCaml community. For example a CLA for opam may reduce the chances that other companies allow their employees to work on opam.  

As for myself I wouldn't sign such a CLA; not only for the unfair terms I mentioned in the thread you linked to but also since I do not understand the bounds of the terms, have no lawyer and do not want nor have the money to hire one.
