octave-mode seemed to have been maintained both in GNU Octave and in 
GNU Emacs for a while.  The Emacs code has been removed from GNU Octave 
(10856:dea165ff6d74) and it is now only maintained in GNU Emacs.  But the 
octave-mode manual is still part of GNU Octave 

It is not included in GNU Emacs and it is partially outdated.  The GNU Octave 
maintainers want to get rid of it and since octave-mode is maintained within 
GNU Emacs it makes sense to move it to GNU Emacs.

It currently says "Copyright (C) 1996-2013 Kurt Hornik".  I have contacted him 
and he agreed to change the copyright to the FSF.  What is the correct 
procedure for this?

(Since he is the original author of octave-mode, I assume he has already 
signed the fsf papers.)
