The doc-strings usually give you a nice hint. I usually use "thread"
for -> and "thread last" for ->>. The actual symbols I think of as
"arrow" and "double arrow".
Then -?> in contrib is "short-circuiting thread". Not sure about the
symbol, perhaps "questionable arrow"? ;-)
Are there any plans to add -$> to core or contrib?

Because that are the rules.

Eg. in Germany
Rich wants to be sure, that there will not be any legal
issues later on. Understandable, I think. (And a good idea, BTW)

No. You are not. And I am not in the US. So what? This should just be an example, that legal things are not easy. And local differences in laws should be taken into account. (Knowing them is too much, but simply saying "public domain" is not enough...)

Since I like turning in circles: these are the rules. If people want to contribute they'll have to do that with their real names. This was Rich's decision. And that's it. They can post on the list whatever pseudonym they like, or in the #clojure channel. But official contributions have to be signed. Why is that a problem?

code they don't own.
Yes, this makes it more difficult for someone to just email a fix for
a small bug.
However, I quite understand Rich's reasons for doing it.
I don't think it creates an unreasonably high barrier to entry
I don't see why there MUST be an electronic-only way.
