It's okay. Don't mind. I just want to make things clear.

I need to know how you did precisely. Did you ask address@hidden or 
something else? What template did you use? Did any maintainer of GNU 
Software specify how to proceed it?

BTW, please contact appropriate maintainers before trying to assign 
copyright from now on. Maintainers of GNU Software are responsible for 
managing copyright issues. If you bypass the maintainers, they may not 
keep things consistent, since they are not notified even if the 
procedures are wrong.

For example, I am very afraid that you might have used an obsolete 
request form. The FSF revises the request form and even the whole 
procedures from time to time, so you need to request up-to-date 
information when you assign copyright. 

Another - more serious - case is that you might have ignored the first 
request completely and simply sent a filled assignment paper to the 
FSF. You could do this, if you get a copy from someone who has assigned 
copyright. If this happens, you wouldn't be informed of all the 
cautions by the FSF, such as a copyright disclaimer by your employer.
