[Wolves] FSFE releases solution to increase legal strength of Free Software projects

Trying to avoid reading the license thing itself, i have the following
questions :

I assume this would work in a similar way to e.g. the Linux kernel,
where individual contributors would need to make some sort of
declaration that they're the authors of $patch/$file etc, and then for
each patch/file state they've assign copyright to $other_entity?

Can such re-assignation of copyright occur 'automatically' due the
contents of 'LICENSE.txt' which is bundled with the source code? Or
would it need to be an explicit statement on each commit/patch?
