FWIW, I fully agree with John that developing a "replacement" for Magit
just because we can't get the copyright paperwork would be harmful at best.

A much more constructive path would be to figure out *how* to get Magit
into GNU ELPA (i.e. start collecting copyright paperwork from the
various contributors, look at the code that's not yet covered to see
what we could about it, consider maybe a subset of Magit, consider
tweaking the policy for GNU ELPA, ...).
