Right, but just as a general comment:

It seems that in Ye Olden Days it was more common for people to do
assignments only for particular files, or particular sets of changes
(ie, that might not apply to future changes). Nowadays it is more common
for people to just do one blanket assignment for all of Emacs, for past
and future changes.

And also, sometimes mistakes happen and things get committed without an
assignment, or not marked "tiny change".

So whether or not someone has entries in the ChangeLog doesn't really
tell you anything about what kind of assignment they have. If you cannot
check copyright.list yourself (or find the file unclear, as I sometimes
do), it is best to ask address@hidden for a definitive answer.

It's not a big deal since if someone signed an assignment before they
usually don't mind doing another (hopefully final) one.
