Hi Hendrik,
I have not done this, and I'll be traveling shortly, so I was going to
say it'd take a few more weeks, apologizing for the delay, but then I
actually checked the FSF database of recorded assignments and disclaimers
and found no trace of one for you, nor even anything recent for Parted.
Did you do it under a different name?  Did you receive any acknowledgement
from the FSF?

I'll double-check with the FSF, just in case...
