Going back to some earlier emails I see you have addressed this earlier.

>From what I could gather from clojure-ts-mode's GitHub repository, you
and Bozidhar are its main authors.  Then there is a single non-trivial
contribution by a single other author Jason Jackson, bringing the total
number of contributors to 3.  That single contribution is a syntax table
which looks non-trivial in terms of LOC, but it repeats a lot of what is
already lisp-data-mode's syntax table anyway, so probably could be
rewritten very easily).

Therefore, given that both you and Bozidhar have signed CA's and given
that you could happily continue to develop it on GitHub (like I did with
Eglot for many years), I'm astonished how you were convinced to not
bring your creation into the GNU project after initially wanting to.

Personally, I can say that Eglot has over a 100 contributors and I never
saw copyright assignment as a anywhere close to a significant issue
hampering contribution.
