Justus, thanks for working with James, reviewing his patch!

I'm afraid, we'll have to...  :-/

James, are you familiar with the FSF copyright assignment process?  For
example, see <http://www.gnu.org/licenses/why-assign.en.html>, and
<https://www.gnu.org/prep/maintain/html_node/Copyright-Papers.html>.  If
that is OK for you, the simplest thing to do is to use the form to assign
to the FSF all past and future contributions to the respective GNU
packages.  See the attached request-assign.future.  After sending this
information to <assign@gnu.org> (please put me in CC so that I can track
it), you'll receive a form to sign, and then mail this to the FSF, or
send a scan of it via email, as applicable.

For »program or package you're contributing to«, I suggest to specify all
of: Mach, MIG, Hurd, glibc.  This is to avoid having to repeat the whole
procedure when touching those closely related packages, working on other
parts of the Hurd code base later on.


Please email the following information to assign@gnu.org, and we
will send you the assignment form for your past and future changes.

Please use your full legal name (in ASCII characters) as the subject
line of the message.

[What is the name of the program or package you're contributing to?]

[Did you copy any files or text written by someone else in these changes?
Even if that material is free software, we need to know about it.]

[Do you have an employer who might have a basis to claim to own
your changes?  Do you attend a school which might make such a claim?]

[For the copyright registration, what country are you a citizen of?]

[What year were you born?]

[Please write your email address here.]

[Please write your postal address here.]

[Which files have you changed so far, and which new files have you written
so far?]
