Here is an interesting comment from Shane to this topic:

Here is another helpful comment:

I think we need to differ between now. Committers/PMC must have signed ICLAs - of course.
But is every Moderator/Admin a committer/PMC by definition? If no, then we need to define
what an Admin/Moderator in the forum can do, when he signs/he does not sign an CLA.

For example, Admins/Moderators without CLA should not have access to the technical aspects
of the forum. They should not be able to update phpBB3, get access to the raw database etc
In addition, Admins/Mods wihtout CLA have no binding vote. Of course, Admins/Mods with CLA
can decide to respect the votes of non-CLAers.

In reply to a comment by Peter Roelofsen:
Mr. Weir, I fail to see where signing the iCLA is relevant for the role of the moderator and
admin. It's only about copyright and patenting. I have written that already, but you seem
to be politely ignoring that.
