CLA signing automation

Hello,

I have a concern about current CLA signing workflow. Currently we need to print a CLA agreement then fill it, then scan it then send it via email and then wait for an unknown amount of time while it is checked then wait while the PR with your signing details is merged into https://github.com/JanusGraph/legal.
It causes very huge delays sometimes more than 1 month. I think it is a big disadvantage for accepting new contributions.

I think we would be able to use either Google form for CLA accepting like this one:
https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSeFFPXTvl4QJ0P-RQJQcRC8V-1JNfYUpGuq3WVmOmFkBN5nNA/viewform?formkey=dGNNVUJEMXF2dERTU0FXM3JjNVBQblE6MQ

Or maybe use some tool for CLA automation like this one:
https://github.com/cla-assistant/cla-assistant

There are a lot of CLA automation tools. I think we could use some.

Can we automate this process to digitally sign CLAs or we need real scanned paper copy?
