i think some people in the project are a bit too dogmatic in this
regard. good test cases are typically so short and "unimaginative" that
they cannot reasonably violate copyright or patents, and can therefore
be safely submitted to gerrit by anyone. if you deem a test case to be
complex enough to be considered a creative work or invention (which
would usually be a bad sign to start with), you can still point the
reporter to the contribution process.
