There are all kinds of crazy people in the world who claim things they don't
have the right to, but to pursue the matter ad absurdum, any lawsuit over a
small typo is going to be thrown out for failing a de minimis test.
Nevertheless, I understand wanting to err on the side of safety. Politics and
courtesy probably play a larger role here than actual legal concerns. And I
certainly agree with Jonathan that IANAL. :)

I must have said something about granting implicit license under the license
of the project when you provide a patch, which is definitely not the same
thing as implicitly giving up copyright.
