Hi Emacs maintainers,

I'm prepared to get a "no" on this, but this is a somewhat interesting example.

Since the last of the two principal authors of mmm-mode has completed their copyright assignment, I've been bringing its copyright notices in order, to add it to ELPA.

There are two files, however, that I've missed in my previous evaluation.

1. mmm-rpm.el. It's ~20 lines, and you could consider its contents to be "configuration" instead of a program. Nevertheless, it's all been written by the same guy who never done copyright assignment, so it doesn't seem fair to write "Copyright by Free Software Foundation" on top of it.

2. mmm-noweb.el. It's much bigger, and reportedly still used by some people. Unfortunately, the author has passed away 7 years ago, so no real chance of copyright assignment.

They are not very essential (we could release one or both separately), but have them to be exceptions would make my life simpler.
