GNU copyright assignment request form


Mailman is a GNU project with the majority of the copyrights being held by the Free Software Foundation. We therefore request that developers who contribute code assign their copyrights in their Mailman contribution to the FSF. To do this, you first need to submit (by email) a request form (see below) containing some basic information, and then fill out the form that the FSF sends you. Please let us know after you've sent the second form so that we can track your contribution. The FSF often doesn't tell us in a timely manner when such forms have been received.
