I wrote “new contributions”.  We deal with past contributions all the
time whose author would no longer be covered by a copyright assignment
for a hypothetical new contribution.  Most of the time, these
contributions are already in the source tree, and we adapt them, but
not always.  The usual cause of such discrepancies is when authors do
not enter copyright assignments with the FSF, but rely on their
employers' pre-existing assignments and the fact that the employer
owns the copyright in a work-for-hire scenario.
