Thanks for the clarification!

Ah, you're right! from

"The self-service system enables developers to entrust their copyrights
to Software Freedom Conservancy, ..."  NOT the FSF.  Bummer.

That's what I mentioned in the above previous email.  

Some emacs-debbugs contributors have expressed an interest in adding in my
patch to debbugs.el directly.  They would require an assignment to the FSF. 

Which thanks to Maxime, I now know that I have to email the FSF!

Also thanks for the reminder Maxime. I am adding Lars to the email chain. 
He's a co-author of debbugs I believe.
