How many developers are involved?

Have they signed papers for MH-E only, or general past/future changes
for emacs as a whole?

In the "good ol' days", two projects on savannah.gnu.org could
trivially share modules with symbolic links, i.e. lisp/mh-e in
emacs CVS could just be a symbolic link to the MH-E CVS root.
IIRC, the url project was shared like that.

But these days, savannah is not an "open sandbox" anymore, so
symbolic links between projects are no longer possible.

I'm not sure what benefit you would actually get in terms of
sharing code by moving from sourceforce to gnu.org -- but
since MH-E is a gnu package, it seems natural to maintain
it on gnu.org.

No, but perhaps savannah.gnu.org supports Subversion for other projects.
