Subject: Tm-log.csv: Logging a Contribution that ONLY removes code?

Hi Bjorn & Janet,
 
I have a funny case here: A contribution just came in via bugzilla, which
fixes a bug by ONLY REMOVING CODE. That is, the contribution is
-1 lines of code in size.
 
Removing the lines is certainly an act of creativity, and I'd like adding the
contributor to our list of contributrs as well as the tm-log.cvs --- but can
the contribution actually be licensed under EPL since it's essentially
a decontribution? Should / Must it be logged? What do you think?
 
Cheers,
