In the meantime while we're waiting for the automated process, I suggested
to Brad that we might be able to add a sorted/searchable plaintext list of
CLA signers somewhere like openbmc-tools repo; I figure that even manually
updating it based on cache miss (contributor isn't on the list) or Brad
pinging when the CLA repo gets updated may still beat putting the onus on
maintainers to look through all the disparate CLAs every time someone posts
a changelist.  I'd be happy to put up the first take of this if there's no
dissent.  (Brad suggested that we should make sure _not_ to include email
addresses, in order to avoid spam; that's fine with me since most
contributors use their full name along with their commits.)
