Here I am a little bit lost. It is possible to sign papers for both
Tramp and Emacs. Regular committers for Tramp have done both.

OTOH, there are (non-trivial) changes of Tramp in the Emacs repository,
which I take over into the Tramp repository, without asking, whether the
submitter has signed papers for Tramp. Having papers just for Emacs
might be sufficient. (I add the licensing clerk of the FSF in Cc, in case
there are other opinions.)

So I will do in your case :-)

However, if it is not a burden for you, you might ask FSF also for
papers with respect to Tramp.

I will check your patch next days, and comment.

Best regards, Michael.
