1 Hi;
3 A long while back, I asked if it was a requirement
4 for ebuild submiters to assign copyright. I was told
5 no, GPL license was entirely sufficient. I think this has
6 changed, or was untrue.
7 Now, Ive already given up on the submission
8 process, but I _am_ curious about this policy, as I
9 havent yet given up on Gentoo itself.

14 (two ancient ebuilds I submitted have 'recently' received
15 feedback, requesting reassignment of copyright. Im
16 not referencing them, as one touches on some of the issues
17 that caused me to punt on contributing ebuilds, and I
18 really dont care to discuss that.)
