What you could have done (attention: more Git magic forthcoming) when
committing 958bd5447e717d80bc14d4ca7257a55d6638bcc9 is to tell Git who
the original author was: git commit --author="...".  But no big deal, as
that's obvious from the commit message as well.

You didn't add the copyright and license boilerplate on that page.
Intentionally or just forgotten?

In general, not neccessarily Hurd-specific, is there consensus ``in the
Net'' and amongst lawyers on what the copyright and licensing conditions
are with respect to putting texts by individuals that appears on
projects' mailing lists or other forums, for example, email or IRC
messages, into official web pages or documentation?

I'm perfectly fine with my (Hurd related) texts being used with Copyright
FSF and whatever documentation license we are using at the moment.  Is
this OK for others as well, or do I have to ask everytime I transfer or
use texts this way?
