Eli, Richard,

I just checked my files, and found that I didn't return the 
assignment papers for cua.el. 

I hadn't time to resolve this back in June, but I had problems
with the wording of the assignment.  I had reported (to
address@hidden) that I had "borrowed" some code and ideas from some
packages already included in emacs, as well as the rect-mark.el
package (which is not included).

However, according to the wording of the assignment I would
claim "that I am the sole copyright holder for the Program".
It includes code copyrighted by FSF and by Rick Sladkey.
So I don't see how I can sign the assignment in its current form.

Can you please tell me what I should do?
