EMACS/GNUS is the exact wording in copyright.list on fencepost without
clear definitions what that actually means.  But from other entries you
can guess that notation means PROJECT/SUBPROJECT or PROJECT/FILE, and
the assignments then only cover the mentioned subproject.  For example,
there are also CAs for EMACS/CALC and EMACS/CEDET,

Yes, but the CA I've seen first when looking for Magnus is only for Gnus
which would not work for contributions to Emacs which are not in Gnus.
But as Michael already mentioned, Magnus has also younger CA for Emacs.
