It is and never was my intent to trick people into participation in
AUCTeX by representing the situation different than it was.  If you
feel that you have been treated unfairly, I would ask you to specify
your contributions to the AUCTeX manual that you would rather not have
contributed had you felt reason to expect that the manual could get
relicensed under the GFDL.  I would then see whether they can be
replaced with reasonable effort.

I actually think it is a good thing that we reached what I consider
pretty much the final license state before I will start collecting
copyright assignments from past contributors beyond the past
maintainers.  While it might make the collection harder in cases like
yours or might necessitate rewriting some parts of AUCTeX, I hope it
will not leave people with hard feelings because they feel duped by
the process.
