We require papers for all "non-tiny" changes that are installed in CVS.

In this case, the file builds on source "owned by FSF", but although
that means that the GPL applies to the changed file, that doesn't make
FSF "owner" of any work derived from that source.

So if the file has been changed "outside" FSF, we require papers!

Could someone point me to an explanation of all this?  I never had to
sign a thing in years past when contributing to GNU emacs.  Emacs
has been a huge help for me on my jobs since the 80's, and I want to
contribute back, but it appears to have become something of a pain
to do so.
