I have presumed that it requires assigning all copyright to the FSF which
means that projects which have no record of authorship cannot become
GNU projects.

I'm interested to know what it means to be part of the GNU Project because
I work on both Emacs and GDB but, in practice, I can see no formal synergy
between the two, or preference towards each other.
