I don't think so for these changes: most of the wording was already in
the documentation, so in the end you brought plumbing, which is not
copyrightable.  That doesn't mean your contribution was welcome, of
course :)

If they remain tiny, then no copyright assignment is needed, but I guess
you'll try to document more, in which case we'll need an assignment.

You were removing .gitignore here...

Well, actually you created a patch which was to be applied on top of the
previous one.  Please don't do that, create a patch which still applies
to the hurd master.

No, it's fine to add more lines to .gitignore.  Do not however add lines

since thoses are just your files, not normally generated by Makefile.
