I think these probably felt under the usual exemption for trivial changes (ie  
changes that are too tiny to be copyrightable anyway AFAIU); what I'm 
suggesting is different: according to 
 the FSF can also accept public domain patches without a signed assignment. If 
I understand that page correctly, there would then be no limitations on your 
contributions, as long as they are considered "not very important" (as opposed 
to "trivial").
