There's some unfortunate mis-communication here, because my feedback
wasn't meant to be unfriendly in any way.  Apologies if my wording
failed me.  English is not the first language for either of us.

I didn't say it was.  But we mark small enough contributions we accept
from people without legal paperwork specially in the commit log
message, so we need to know the status just to decide what to put

As it turns out, Alex already has an assignment on file for
contributing to Emacs.  But I couldn't verify that without knowing his
full name or email address.

I'd prefer to have the whole series, to see where this is going, and
then commit them in one go.  But that's me.  John?
