The worst possible state in my opinion : there is a contribution attribution agreement.
I was willing to contribute, but when I saw that, I refused.
This 'agreement' is a new development and applies only to new contributors - existing ones are grandfathered in for the time being, where you need only agree to license your contributions under CC-BY-SA. The terms are still being discussed, so you have a chance to influence the debate. I also hope that the one-sidedness of the contributor agreement will be fixed.
