Yes, that is one of the murkier parts of what is or is not counted as a
contribution that needs copyright assigned and I don't claim to
understand the implications w.r.t. the "20 lines or less" rule (or where
that 20 lines come from really, since you can do something substantial
in much less than 20 lines or something trivial in many more than 20).
However if you want to use that exemption, I guess it would be easier to
verify if that patch was made in two parts, one adding a literal copy
from org-e-latex (with a commit message that marks it as such) and the
second making those repetitive changes, marked as a TINYCHANGE.  Just a

They don't usually, but the new exporter is scheduled to be moved into
Org core and at that time the copyright needs to be assigned, which is
why Nicolas is already keeping an eye on it.

Then I would think that everything should be resolved soon, however the
processing of papers can sometimes take a good deal of time.
