Hi Ralph,

Thanks for taking the time to send in the fixes!

The contributor agreement doesn't conflict with the GPL. In fact, the
Free Software Foundation also requires a very similar contribution
agreement to contribute to FSF-maintained projects.

It looks like this is a series of small bug fixes that may not require
us to jump through that hoop, though. We'll evaluate this case when we
take a deeper look at SNOW-174
